Timeliness still best at Nordic Patent Institute

For the last four years, Nordic Patent Institute has been on top of the list of International Search authorities with regards to timeliness in transmitting International Search Reports (ISRs) to the applicant.

Since Nordic Patent Institute started performing international PCT searches, timeliness has been a key factor.

According to the 2012 PCT Yearly review, which was recently published by WIPO, Nordic Patent Institute is on top of the list for 2011 with an impressive 100% of all ISR transmitted within 17 months from the priority date.
