65 English translation of documents as required


If any document or documents forming part of a Treaty application have been filed in a language other than English, the applicant must, within 3 months after the commencement date of the national phase, file a verified translation of that document or those documents.


However, the Commissioner may, on any terms that the Commissioner thinks fit, extend that time for a period of up to 2 months.


The Commissioner may grant an extension under subclause (2) even if the time for the filing of the verified translation has expired under subclause (1).
