The Patents Act 1977 (Electronic Communications) Order 2003

This Order amends the Patents Act 1977 (the “Patents Act”) to facilitate the use of electronic communications with the Patent Office. Article 2 inserts a new section 124A into the Patents Act. Directions made by the comptroller may apply generally or to a description of cases or in relation to particular persons, and provision is made for how the directions will be brought to the attention of the persons affected by them. The comptroller may vary or revoke a direction by a subsequent direction. A direction may include incidental, supplementary, saving or transitional provisions. There is provision for a document to be deemed to be delivered where the comptroller delivers a document using electronic communications. Article 3 provides that “electronic communication” in the Patents Act is to have the same meaning as in the Electronic Communications Act 2000.
