(193) Continuation of Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) 2.0 Pilot Program On January 29, 2012, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) simplified the requirements and procedures for Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) program participation with respect to eight other offices (i.e., IP Australia (IPAU), Canada (CIPO), the European Patent Office (EPO), Finland (NBPR), Japan (JPO), Russia (ROSPATENT), Spain (SPTO) and United Kingdom (UKIPO)). This simplified program, PPH 2.0, was due to terminate on January 28, 2013. In order to adequately assess the feasibility of the PPH 2.0 program, the USPTO will continue to collect more information before any final decision on the program is made. Accordingly, the pilot has been extended indefinitely. Any inquiries concerning this notice may be directed to Bryan Lin, Office of PCT Legal Administration at 571-272-3303, or via e-mail addressed to email@example.com. Specific questions about the Patent Prosecution Highway should be directed to the Office of Petitions at 571-272-3282, or via e-mail addressed to PPHfeedback@uspto.gov.
