The Board Totals above are an accurate depiction of aggregate receipts and production for the fiscal year.
Because the Technology Centers have been in existence less than a full year, the Technology Center statistics are estimations.
Technology center 1900 has been abolished; accordingly, the inventory for technology center 1900 has been aggregated with the inventory of technology center 1700.
Of the 8344 pending appeals, 1564 are currently assigned to administrative patent judge dockets.
With the exception of a limited number of appeals involving special circumstances, the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences is currently deciding appeals received at the Board as follows:

CHEMICAL - Fiscal Year 1996
ELECTRICAL - Fiscal Year 1997
MECHANICAL - Fiscal Year 1998
DESIGN - Fiscal Year 1999
