On 22 June 2010 TIPO launched a new program, "Ex officio Telephone Notifications for Amendments". The program went into effect on 10 June 2010 and is intended to provide applicants with greater flexibility in when amendments to claims or specifications may be filed. Now, if an invention application is in the examination or reexamination stage, an applicant may submit a request to file amendments. Previously amendments could only be made within 15 months of initial filing or only in response to an office action. Further details can be found here (Chinese).
