Revisions to the Industry Collaborative Patent Interview Pilot Program Will Take Effect Jan 3rd, 2023
TIPO has implemented the Industry Collaborative Patent Interview Pilot Program (hereinafter referred to as "the Program") from November 1st, 2021, to October 31st, 2022. The Program has been well received by the public. To further enhance the process of collaborative patent interviews, TIPO has made revisions to the Program and plans to renew the trial period for another two years.
This Program aims to provide applicants with swift and smooth patent rights application experience and assist them in building their patent portfolio. The interviews with applicants allow patent examiners to better understand the application's advanced technical content, thus enabling them to conduct an efficient and high-quality examination. Patent applicants may proactively submit a letter of intent in paper or electronic form.
