Patents Regulations 2014

150 Power to waive requirements for patent applications and specifications temporarily

(1)

The Commissioner may allow a patent application or specification to be filed that is not made in accordance with Part 1, or any provision of regulations 50(1), 51, 52, 54, 55 and 69, provided that the applicant takes any action necessary to comply with the relevant provision as soon as practicable after the application or specification is filed.

(2)

If the patent application or specification is not amended or other action is not taken to comply with the relevant provision as soon as practicable after filing the application or specification, the application must be treated as if it had been abandoned or, in the case of a specification, as if the specification had never been filed unless the Commissioner waives compliance under regulation 149.
