Type of Review: Extension and revision of a currently approved information collection. Number of Respondents: 750 respondents. Average Hours per Response: The USPTO estimates 750 responses and that it will take the public approximately 15 minutes to complete VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:30 Aug 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 this information collection, depending on the complexity of the submission. This includes the time to gather the necessary information, prepare the appropriate briefs, petition, and other papers, and submit the completed items to the USPTO. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 188 hours. Estimated Total Annual Non-Hour Cost Burden: $0. Needs and Uses: The USPTO surveys international and domestic participants of the USPTO’s GIPA training programs to obtain feedback from the participants on the effectiveness of the various services provided to them in the training programs. GIPA was established in 2006 to offer training programs on the enforcement of intellectual property rights, patents, trademarks, and copyright. The training programs offered by GIPA are designed to meet the specific needs of foreign government officials (including judges; prosecutors; police; customs officials; patent, trademark, and copyright officials; and policymakers) concerning various intellectual property topics, such as global intellectual property rights protection, enforcement, and strategies to handle the protection and enforcement issues in their respective countries. This information collection contains three surveys directed to separate audiences: Overseas-program participants, post-program participants, and alumni. The Overseas-Program Survey is designed for international participants at the conclusion of the GIPA training program conducted overseas. This survey replaces the existing Pre-Program Survey and is a shortened version of the Post-Program Survey. The Post-Program Survey is used to analyze the overall effectiveness of the program and is conducted at the conclusion of training programs held at U.S. locations. The Alumni Survey is used to determine the benefit of the GIPA training program for the future job performance of the participant. The data obtained from these three surveys will be used to evaluate the percentage of foreign officials trained by GIPA who have increased their expertise in intellectual property, enhanced their professional abilities and future job performance, and developed their own nation’s intellectual property program. All the surveys have updated questions and answer options. Affected Public: Federal Government (Foreign Government). Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary.
