04/20/2021

The International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) invites interested parties to participate in a series of online training seminars on the use of WIPO Standard ST.26.

Online training events are designed for any interested person, including intellectual property (IP) offices or patent applicants. The seminars will be held in English only for the time being.

Details on how to register for these online events can be found here: https://www.wipo.int/meetings/en/topic.jsp?group_id=330.

We remind you that the World Intellectual Property Organization has launched the WIPO Sequence, a common global software tool that enables patent applicants and intellectual property offices to prepare amino acid and nucleotide sequence listing compliant with WIPO Standard ST.26, as part of a national, regional or international patent application.

WIPO Sequence Validator is another tool component that enables IP offices to verify the compliance of filed sequence listing data with WIPO ST.26.

Member States agreed that all sequence listings being part of a patent application submitted at national, regional and international level must be compliant with WIPO Standard ST.26 from January 1, 2022.
