Global Dossier Initiative
Global Dossier is a proposed set of business services aimed at modernizing the global patent system and delivering benefits
to all stakeholders.
The first phase is being delivered by the IP5 Offices: IP5 is made up of: USPTO, The European Patent Office, Japan Patent Office, Korean Intellectual Property Office and the State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China. USPTO is in discussions with other offices to expand its scope.
Global Dossier will provide all stakeholders with secure, one-stop access to related applications across the five largest patent offices in the world.
» One point of access for stakeholders to manage
» Improved information and tools for worksharing among
» Time and cost savings
The first service, access to the IP5 dossier information, will be delivered in phases. The first phase will be delivered to USPTO examiners later this year. Access to external stakeholders will follow. Stay tuned for updates.
We want to hear from you! The IP5 Offices have many ideas on potential services to deliver and we want to hear directly from you, our stakeholders. Please send your ideas to us at GlobalDossier@uspto.gov.
