Research and Examination Requests Can Be Made Together In Patent Applications
Studies carried out by our Institution in order to accelerate the patent processing processes and to provide better quality service to the applicants are continuing.
In this context, the option of making research and examination requests together has been made available to applicants so that the research and examination report preparation service, which are the basic stages of the patent processes, can be offered faster.
The "Request for Joint Preparation of a Patent Research and Examination Report" is a new option, and within the scope of the current application, the application process can be continued by making the search and examination requests separately.
In case "Request for Joint Preparation of a Patent Research and Examination Report" option is chosen,
- If the research report is positive, the examination report will be prepared and sent together with the research report.
- In case the research report is negative, the research report will be sent, and the examination report preparation process will be initiated at the end of the three-month period from the date of notification of the relevant research report.
