Singapore Patents Act

Singapore Patents Act
(Version in force from Nov  1, 2016)
 The Singapore Patents Act has been revised in 1995, in 2002, 2005 and 2014.  This revised edition entered into force on Feb 14, 2014 and introduced a shift from the present self-assessment system to a positive grant system. This self-assessment system was introduced in Singapore in 1995 as a means of encouraging patent registration. The changes in the 2014 Revised Act, will bring Singapore in line with international standards by establishing a positive grant system.
