Who can become applicant in Japan?

In Japan, an inventor, or his or her assignee can be an applicant. Also it is common in Japan for an assignee company to file a patent application, as well as a PCT international application.

However, an applicant does not have to submit an assignment unless the examiner requests it. In general, no assignment is required so long as the inventor’s address is the same as that of the assignee.
