Full First Action Interview Pilot Program continues until May 16,2012

Under the program, participants were permitted to conduct an interview with the examiner after reviewing a Pre-Interview Communication providing the result of a prior art search conducted by the examiner.  Participants experienced many benefits including:  (1) the ability to advance prosecution of an application; (2) enhanced interaction between applicant and the examiner; (3) the opportunity to resolve patentability issues one-on-one with the examiner at the beginning of the prosecution process; and (4) the opportunity to facilitate possible early allowance.

Requests filed on or after April 1, 2011 and before May 16, 2012 will be granted if all requirements are met.
