Patent Quality Chat

Topic: Examiners Provide Their Views on Prepared Applications.

The USPTO’s Patent Quality Chat webinar series continues in October (note the different day/time) discussing a survey where “Examiners Provide Their Views on Prepared Applications.”  USPTO has recently completed an application readiness survey by polling examiners to investigate attributes, which are integral to a patent application, that enhance the ability of examiners to efficiently and effectively do their job.  Particular features in filed specifications, claims and IDS documents were considered; and examiners across disciplines and experience levels commented on how these features helped or hindered their review of patent applications.  Application readiness experts will be discussing the survey results and want to hear your ideas about how USPTO can help you improve the quality of incoming patent applications.

We look forward to hearing your feedback about how the data collected from our application readiness survey can better assist your patent prosecution.  Please send your input and questions to before and during the event.

The Patent Quality Chat webinar series is presented as a part of USPTO’s continuous efforts to improve patent quality.
