Foreign Filing Decisions & Procedures

Typically at the beginning of each quarter, it’s recomended that the patent coordinator consult with the patent manager and obtain input as needed from outside IP counsel, to formulate decisions regarding:

  • The filing of a PCT or national stage application within the 1 year deadline from the filing of any priority US applications.
  • The filing of Chapter II demands (requests for examination) in the PCT process.
  • Decisions regarding National and Regional Phase filings based on PCT applications.
