(211) Colombian Superintendence of Industry and Commerce Transitioning to the Global Patent Prosecution Highway Pilot Program On September 1, 2012, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) commenced a Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) pilot program which enabled an applicant whose claims have been determined allowable/patentable in an application filed in the Colombian Superintendence of Industry and Commerce (SIC) to have the corresponding application filed in the USPTO advanced out of turn for examination. See Patent Prosecution Highway Pilot Program between the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Colombian Superintendence of Industry and Commerce, 1381 OFF. GAZ. PAT. OFFICE 212 (August 21, 2012). On January 6, 2014, the USPTO began participating in the Global PPH ("Global PPH") pilot program, which consolidated and replaced numerous earlier PPH programs, thereby streamlining and simplifying the PPH process for both applicants and Global PPH participating offices. See Implementation of the Global and IP5 Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) Pilot Programs with Participating Offices, 1400 OFF. GAZ. PAT. OFFICE 172 (March 18, 2014). The SIC has informed the USPTO that, effective July 6, 2017, the SIC will participate in the Global PPH pilot program. On such date, the Global PPH pilot program will supersede the bilateral PPH pilot program between the USPTO and the SIC. Any inquiries concerning this notice may be directed to Bryan Lin, International Patent Legal Administration, at 571-272-3303, or via e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
