What does novelty mean?

An invention is new if it does not form part of the state of the art before the date of filing. No identical invention has been publicly disclosed in publication anywhere and at anytime whatever.

Prior art encompasses everything made available to the public by way of a written or oral description or by use, or by any other means before the date of filing of the Sudan patent application or the priority date validity claimed in respect thereof..

Prior state of the art does not keep out new uses of known material or compositions from patentability.
