The contents of the international application are set out in Article 3(2). The application must contain:

(i)
a request; 
(ii)
a description (see GL/PCT-EPO F‑II, 4);
(iii)
one or more claims (see GL/PCT-EPO F-IV);
(iv)
one or more drawings (where required; see GL/PCT-EPO F‑II, 5); and

This chapter discusses items (ii), (iv) and (v) insofar as they are the concern of the ISA and IPEA. Item (v) is dealt with first.
