Patent Quality Chat

The USPTO’s Patent Quality Chat webinar series continues Oct. 12, from 11 a.m. – noon ET to discuss “Examiners Provide Their Views on Prepared Applications.”

In a recent application readiness survey, we polled examiners to investigate patent application attributes that enhance the ability of examiners to efficiently and effectively do their job. Particular features in filed specifications, claims, and Information Disclosure Statement (IDS) documents were considered. Examiners across disciplines and experience levels commented on how these features helped or hindered their review of patent applications. 
Application readiness experts will discuss the survey results on Oct. 12. Share your ideas about how the USPTO can help you improve the quality of incoming patent applications. We look forward to hearing your feedback. Please send your input and questions to before and during the event.
