As an academic group designated by the Patent Office, the CSJ has been providing participants with a document certifying the delivery of the respective presentation at the study meeting. This certification was previously required upon the patent application being filled if the applicant sought to apply under the Patent Act Article 30 (Exceptions to Lack of Novelty of Invention). 

Following the revision to the Act in 2011, patent applications filed after April 1st, 2012, no longer require the submission of this certifying document issued by the designated academic groups. Instead, applicants can now simply submit a certifying document in the specified format along with objective evidence. For details, please check the Patent Office website given below.

Those who wish to obtain the certifying document issued by the CSJ can request it via mail as earlier. Please visit the following site for details:
