Centralized Information for Patent Applications

A centralized listing of major Patent Application Initiatives is now available via the USPTO website that provides applicants with access to information on several patent initiatives designed to advance and support the examination process.

Applicants now have a single website location to compare the various patent application initiatives that are available prior to examination, during examination, or after close of prosecution. Applicants can easily evaluate and contrast the benefits of participating in patent initiatives using a comprehensive matrix of initiatives and convenient links to detailed information pages. The website also provides direct access to applicant assistance for addressing questions about these initiatives.
