As agreed at the last IP5 meeting held in Washington (30 July - 03 August 2012), the IB prepared an initial draft of the DAS Service Level Agreement (DAS-SLA) for comments by IP5 Offices. A second draft version DAS-SLA 0.2 which took into account feedbacks by the EPO, the JPO and the USPTO was made on 16 November 2012 by the IB and no additional revision has been requested by IP5 Offices. However the JPO provided on 12 December 2012 the following aditional comment regarding the DAS SLA-Annex.
Current participating Offices and DAS Consultative Group members are welcome to comment on the second draft of the DAS-SLA by Friday January 18, 2013. If no further comment is received by the suggested timeline, the IB will publish this second revision as finalized version DAS-SLA 1.0.
