Patent Quality Chat - Webinar

Topic: Patent Quality Metrics

The USPTO’s Patent Quality Chat webinar series continues in June when we host our discussion on “Patent Quality Metrics”.  Our speakers will be discussing the latest evolution of our patent quality metrics that divides them into (1) product indicators, focusing on correctness and clarity, (2) process indicators, tracking efficiency and consistency, and (3) perception indicators, used to validate our first two indicators.  Also, we will be sharing some metrics from the first half of fiscal year 2017.

Further information about our patent quality metrics is available on our Quality Metrics webpage

We look forward to hearing your feedback on our current metrics and your ideas on how to best make our updated metrics available to you, our stakeholders, on a regular basis.  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 quality improvement efforts through the Enhanced Patent Quality Initiative (EPQI).  More information is available on the Patent Quality Chat webpage.
