FAQ

Q 5. Does the JPO only conduct a formality examination, or does it also conduct a substantive examination such as on novelty and creative difficulty?

The JPO conducts a substantive examination in addition to a formality examination on a filed design application.  Accordingly, a certain time period is required until you receive the result of the full examination.  For example, in a direct application, it takes about six to nine months from the filing to an issuance of the first result of the examination.
