Decision of registration
If the examiner finds a ground for rejection of a patent application, a notice of preliminary rejection will be issued and the applicant will be given an opportunity to submit a response to the preliminary rejection within a time limit designated by the examiner. Such a time limit is extendable upon the request for an extension by the applicant.

In responding to the preliminary rejection, the applicant may file an argument with or without an amendment to the specification and/or claims. If the examiner determines that the argument is without merit and the ground for rejection has not been overcome, he will issue a notice of final rejection of the patent application.

If no grounds for rejecting a patent application are found, the examiner shall grant a patent right.
When a patent applicant receives a notice of decision to grant a patent, he should pay the first 3 years' annuities within 3 months from the date of receipt of such notice as a registration fee.

If the applicant fails to pay the registration fee within the three-month period, the registration can still be made by paying twice the usual fee within 6 months after the expiration of the three-month period. Therefore, if the registration fee is not paid within 9 months from the date of receipt of a notice of decision to grant a patent, the patent application will be deemed to have been abandoned.
Publication of gazettes
Where the examiners find no grounds for rejection of a patent application, KIPO publishes the patent registration after the patent applicant pays the registration fee. Once a patent has been published in the Patent Registration Gazette, any person may file an opposition against the registration of a patent between the date on which the patent is registered and the date that marks a lapse of three months since the publication date.
