Corresponding applications: Divisional applications

9.92 Scenario (1)(d): The Singapore application is a divisional application of the Singapore application referred to in (1)(a) above, and said divisional application validly claims priority under Section 17 from the prescribed office application being used as the basis for the supplementary examination request.

4

9.93 Scenario (1)(e): The prescribed office application being used as the basis for the supplementary examination request is a divisional application of the prescribed office application referred to in (1)(b) above, and said divisional application validly claims priority under Paris Convention from the Singapore application.

5

9.94 Scenario (1)(f): The Singapore application is a divisional application of the Singapore application referred to in (1)(c) above, and said divisional application validly claims priority under Section 17 from said earlier Convention country application, and the prescribed office application being used as the basis for the supplementary examination request also validly claims priority under Paris Convention or domestic priority from said earlier Convention country application.

6

9.95 Scenario (1)(g): An application is filed in a Convention country. Applications are subsequently filed both in Singapore validly claiming priority under Section 17 from said earlier Convention country application and in a prescribed office validly claiming priority under Paris Convention or domestic priority from said earlier Convention country application. The prescribed office application being used as the basis for the supplementary examination request is a divisional application of the parent prescribed office application and also validly claims priority from said earlier Convention country application.

7

9.96 Scenario (1)(h): An application is filed in a Convention country. Applications are subsequently filed both in Singapore validly claiming priority under Section 17 from said earlier Convention country application and in a prescribed office validly claiming  priority under Paris Convention or domestic priority from said earlier Convention country application. The Singapore application is a divisional application of the parent Singapore application and validly claims priority under Section 17 from  said earlier Convention country application. The prescribed office application being used as the basis for the supplementary examination request is a divisional application of the parent prescribed office application and also validly claims priority from said earlier Convention country application under Paris Convention.

8

9.97 Scenario (1)(i): An application is filed in Singapore with no priority claim and an application is subsequently filed in a prescribed office validly claiming priority from said earlier Singapore application under Paris Convention. The Singapore application is a divisional application of said earlier Singapore application. The Singapore divisional application in this case is taken to adopt the filing date of the parent application as its filing date rather than making a priority claim to that application. The prescribed office application and the Singapore divisional application are therefore not corresponding applications.

9

9.98 Scenario (1)(j): Similarly, the prescribed office application is a divisional application of the prescribed office application referred to in (1)(i) above, the final results of the prescribed office divisional application may not be used as the basis for a supplementary examination for the Singapore divisional application.

10

9.99 Scenario (1)(k): An application is filed in a prescribed office with no priority claim and an application is subsequently filed in Singapore validly claiming priority from said earlier prescribed office application under Paris Convention. The prescribed office application is a divisional application of the parent application in the prescribed office. The prescribed office divisional application preserves an earlier filing date comprising the filing date of the parent application as well as the benefit of the right of priority, if any. Said divisional application is regarded to make a priority claim to its parent application. The Singapore divisional application and the prescribed office application are thus corresponding applications.

11

9.100 Scenario (1)(l): Similarly, the Singapore application is a divisional application of the Singapore application referred to in (1)(k) above, the final results of the prescribed office divisional application may be used as the basis for a supplementary examination for the Singapore divisional application.
