Guide for applicants, Part 2: PCT procedure before the EPO (Euro-PCT Guide)

International publication of the application and the ISR
The international publication of the international application by the IB takes place promptly after expiry of 18 months from the priority date. If the ISR is available at that time it will be published together with the application. If not, the ISR is published separately from the international application on receipt by the IB. 
Unlike the ISR, the WO-ISA will not be published. However, a WO-ISA established for an international application filed on or after 1 July 2014 will be made available to the public as of the date of publication of the international application.
