New combined petition option to facilitate participation in the expanded Collaborative Search Pilot program

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published a Federal Register Notice announcing a new combined petition option that will make it easier to participate in the expanded Collaborative Search Pilot (CSP) program. The USPTO collaborated with its counterpart offices, the Japan Patent Office (JPO) and the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO), to develop combined petition forms that applicants will file in only one of the partner intellectual property (IP) offices, rather than filing separate petitions in both partner IP offices. The expanded CSP program is designed to accelerate examination and provide the applicant with more comprehensive prior art by combining the search expertise of examiners at the USPTO and the JPO or the KIPO before the first office action is issued.

The full text of the notice is available on the Patent Related Notices webpage. Please see the USPTO’s CSP webpage for more information about the expanded CSP program.
