Proposed Collection, Comment Request, 28935-28936 [2020-10337]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 94 / Thursday, May 14, 2020 / Notices abandonment of the application; or (5) the filing of a Notice of Appeal. The final disposition of an application, however, may occur later than the 12month time frame in certain situations (e.g., when the applicant filed a petition under 37 CFR 1.181). In any event, however, the 12-month time frame is a goal. Any failure to meet the 12-month goal, or other issues related to this goal that arise, are neither petitionable nor appealable matters. Applicants may shorten the overall pendency of an application in the pilot program by replying to Office actions and notices earlier than required by the USPTO. For example, the USPTO will endeavor to reduce pendency, from approval of the request for prioritized examination to final disposition, to six months if all replies occur within 30 days of a notice by the USPTO. This goal depends on additional factors, including the demands placed on specific examiners by multiple copending applications under the pilot program. Current statistics for prioritized examination are available at https://www.uspto.gov/corda/ dashboards/patents/main.dashxml? CTNAVID=1007.
