9.106 Scenario (3)(d): The final results of the PCT application may be used as the basis for a supplementary examination of the Singapore application. An application is filed in a Convention country and a PCT application is subsequently filed validly claiming priority from said earlier Convention country application under Paris Convention. For the Singapore application which is a divisional application of the Singapore national phase application in this case, the PCT application will be a corresponding international application as they share a common priority document (i.e. the convention country application).

9.108 Scenario (3)(e): The final results of the PCT application may be used as the basis for a supplementary examination of the Singapore application. An application is filed in Singapore with no priority claim and a PCT application is subsequently filed 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 PCT application and the Singapore divisional application are therefore not corresponding applications.
