This statute directs, in relevant part, that PTAB shall ‘‘on written appeal of an applicant, review adverse decisions of examiners upon applications for patents pursuant to section 134(a).’’ PTAB has the authority, under 35 U.S.C. 134 and 306 to decide appeals in applications and ex parte reexamination proceedings, and under pre-AIA sections of the Patent Act, i.e., 35 U.S.C. 134 and 315, to decide appeals in inter partes reexamination proceedings. In addition, 35 U.S.C. 6 establishes the membership of PTAB as the Director, the Deputy Director, the Commissioner for Patents, the Commissioner for Trademarks, and the Administrative Patent Judges. Each appeal is decided by a merits panel of at least three members of the Board. The Board’s responsibilities under the statute include the review of ex parte appeals from adverse decisions of PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Permit or amendment issuance date 85 FR 7295; February 7, 2020.

In inter partes reexamination appeals, PTAB reviews examiner’s decisions adverse to a patent owner or a third-party requester. PTAB’s opinions and decisions for publicly available files are published on the USPTO website. The items associated with this information collection include appeals in applications and ex parte reexamination proceedings, and appeals in inter partes reexamination proceedings that are governed by the regulations in 37 CFR 41. Failure to comply with the appropriate regulations may result in dismissal of the appeal or denial of entry of the submission. The name of this information collection is being changed from ‘‘PTAB Actions’’ to ‘‘PTAB Appeals’’ to better reflect the content of the information collection. In addition, this renewal adds three items currently approved in another information collection (0651– 0031: Patent Processing) to include all items related to patent appeals in a single information collection. These three items are: Notice of Appeal, Amendment to Cancel Claims During an Appeal, and Request for Oral Hearing. A separate change request will be submitted to remove these three items from that information collection (0651– 0031: Patent Processing). II. Method of Collection Items in this information collection may be submitted via mail, hand delivery, facsimile, or filed as attachments through the USPTO’s Webbased electronic filing system (EFSWeb).
