USPTO Systems Status and Availability
Friday Sep 21, 2012

Current Status

New Application Data Sheet (ADS) form is available

Version 2.2.4 of the ADS form is now available. If you used AIA/14 form version 2.2.3 or earlier and marked "Authorization to Permit Access," checkbox, the ADS received by USPTO may not display your selection. The version number can be located at the lower left of the AIA/14 form.

Applicants are advised to check Private PAIR to verify the indication on the PTO/AIA/14 that is filed via EFS-Web, and to review the filing receipt which will indicate when an acceptable authorization has been received. If your authorization was not recorded, an SB/39 form can be used to provide authorization to access by Participating Offices.
