Scope of ST.96 ST.96 Structure ST.96 for UPOV Further Consideration Work Plan 2 2

3 Background of ST.96 (1/2) Three existing WIPO XML Standards:
ST.36 - processing patent information using XML; ST.66 - processing trademark information using XML; ST.86 - processing industrial design information using XML. Need of a new Standard for harmonization: ST.96 The XML4IP project was created in 2007 to develop common vocabulary for the harmonization among patent, trademark and industrial design information in XML format. 3

4 Background of ST.96 (2/2) ST.96 Vocabulary Common Patent Design
Components Patent Trademark Common

5 XML4IP Task Force XML4IP Task Force was established to carry on the XML4IP project (i.e., to prepare ST.96) Currently 56 TF members from 22 IP offices Discussion via the Wiki e-Forum (restricted to TF members) Documents and proposals discussed and agreed by the Task Force are available on the WIPO’s website at: 5

6 Objetives of ST.96 Facilitation of data exchange among IP offices using XML Harmonization of data structures among patents, trademarks and industrial designs (three IP types) rules and guidelines for dealing with common data structures across three IP types as well as specific data structure to one IP type Maximization of data transformability from ST.36, ST.66 and ST.86 format to ST.96 format Facilitation of XML implementation within IP offices

12 XML4IP Work Plan (tentative)
XML4IP T.F. to hold a meeting to prepare materials for the final proposal of ST.96 (Nov. or Dec. 2011) XML4IP T.F. to submit a final proposal of ST.96 for consideration and adoption by the Committee on WIPO Standards (CWS) (Dec or early 2012): The CWS to consider the final proposal for adoption of ST.96 at its 2nd session (first half of 2012) The work plan depends on the schedule of the 2nd session of the CWS.
