EBS 12.1 Minimum Patching Baselines and Dates

Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 is now covered by Premier Support to December 31, 2021. This is documented here:
Oracle Lifetime Support table for EBS

Premier Support includes new EBS 12.1 patches for:
  • Individual product families (e.g. Oracle Financials)
  • Quarterly security updates released via the Critical Patch Update process
  • New technology stack certifications with server-based components
  • New certifications for end-user desktops and mobile devices
What are the minimum patching baselines for EBS 12.1?
The minimum patching baselines for EBS 12.1 have not changed.  New EBS 12.1 patches are created and tested against the minimum patching baseline documented in Section 4.2, "E-Business Suite 12.1 Minimum Prerequisites" in this document:
All EBS 12.1 customers must apply the minimum patch prerequisites to be eligible for Premier Support. Those patches include the EBS 12.1.3 Family Packs for the products that you're using and a small number of technology stack infrastructure updates.
Instead of applying the minimum baseline
Many new updates have been released since that patching baseline was originally published.  These new patches contain stability, performance, and security-related updates and are strongly recommended for all customers. 
If you haven't applied any of those updates yet, the simplest solution would be to apply the latest suite-wide EBS 12.1.3 Recommended Patch Collection (RPC).  That way, you get all of the 12.1 minimum patching requirements and the latest updates simultaneously.
As of the date of this blog article, the latest EBS 12.1 Recommended Patch Collection is RPC 5.  If you've reached this blog article via a search engine, it is possible that a new Recommended Patch Collection has been released since this article was first published.  Click on the "Certifications" link in the sidebar for a pointer to the latest EBS 12.1 RPC.
