Accelerated patent processing at the Intellectual Property Office: Introduction of a superfast service
Launch date: 17 April 2013
Closing date: 12 June 2013
This consultation seeks views on a proposal to offer a premium "superfast" patent processing service which would be capable of granting patents in around 90 days, on payment of an additional fee. It also seeks views on our existing acceleration services.
The consultation is directed at all interested parties, including patent applicants, patent owners, patent attorneys, legal professionals, and any parties having an interest in the patents and patent applications of others.
