2 ST.36 Status Patent Application Publication and Patent Grant Publication –USPTO continues to publish in ST.36 format and no end date has yet been determined –The USPTO continues to make modifications to its implementation of ST.36, known as Red Book. For example, changes were made to bibliographic data due to the following: The Hague Agreement, which will be implemented in January

3 ST.96 Status: Support to the IB USPTO supports the IB in reviewing, updating, and/or creating WIPO ST.96 Resources for every new publication –ST.96 Annexes ST.96 Annex I: XML Design Rules and Conventions ST.96 Annex II: IP Data Dictionary ST.96 Annex III: IP XML Schemas ST.96 Annex IV: XML Schema Technical Specification ST.96 Annex V: Implementation Rules and Guidelines ST.96 Annex VI: Transformation Rules and Guidelines –ST.96 Main Body 3

4 ST.96 Status: Cont’d Support to the IB USPTO supports IB to update the Schematron based on V1_0_D6 DRC and then works with other IPOs to test –Schematron: is an ISO/IEC standard and is a rule-based validation language for making assertions about the presence or absence of patterns in XML schemas. Validates whether an IPO’s implementation schema follows the XML Design Rules and Conventions of ST.96. Identifies enforceability status because not all rules are enforceable by the Schematron. The report identifies the components not conforming to the rules, along with details of the non-conformance, as well as, identifies the components that must be assessed manually –Current Schematron Update to include the changes to the Design Rules and Conventions (Annex 1) is In Progress –Once Schematron Update is Complete, the Schematron will be provided to the Task Force members for testing their Implementation Schemas. 4
