Authentic text of the international application

The "record copy", the copy transmitted to the IB, is considered, for the purposes of the procedure under the PCT, to be a true copy of the international application.

Where a document in pre-conversion format has been submitted by the applicant together with the international application, that document may be used as a fallback in the event of conversion errors (see GL/PCT-EPO A‑II, 1.2.3).
