“We help you fix inconsistencies in the application at the stage of Notice of Allowance
The Post Allowance review performed at the stage of Notice of Allowance is offered as a package service with us at barcodeIP. The review is conducted to identify last moment errors/gaps in the application about to be granted. The time window to correct the errors is small (three months within which the issue fee should be paid), so this review should be conducted without delay once the Notice of Allowance has been received.
We help you fix inconsistencies in the application at this stage. Depending on the severity of the issue, an RCE may need to be filed to make necessary corrections or even defer or withdraw patent from being issued by filing a petition.
Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The post allowance review includes five deliverables - a Review report, Proof-read application, Clean allowed claim set, Cited Art review and Issue Fee Payment form.
This review is conducted based on a checklist available with us which covers the critical fields.
We check for formal document submission and signatures, title and filing dates, entity status and priority. If there have been changes in the Title or other critical bibliographic data, a check is conducted to see if the changes are reflected in the data at Public PAIR and the Assignment database.
All IDS submissions are noted and checked if they have been considered and approved by the examiner.
The application is also reviewed for Claims as filed and issued; whether it was subject to restriction requirement; objections it faced at each office action and finally incorporation of examiner’s amendment.
Last but not the least we mention whether a terminal disclaimer has been filed to obviate a double patenting rejection. This review also serves as an information support for decision to file continuation/CIP application.
The allowed application is proofread as a last step to filter and correct errors in the application.
The application is proofread for basic spelling and grammar, figurative text comparison and incorporation of amendments that have happened through the prosecution cycle. The applicant errors corrected at this stage will avoid correction post grant. Getting applicant errors corrected post grant involves a CoC fee of $150 per request.
Cited Art Review is conducted once a Notice of Allowance has been granted to a patent application. The patent family members are scrubbed for prior art references. References cited in the family members but not listed in the subject application are identified as additional references. These identified additional references are then checked for equivalent citations in the subject application. The unique references are then suggested to the applicant for possible IDS filing.
The public databases EPO, USPTO & Global Dossier are used for extracting information.
This service can also be picked up as an independent request. Mail us your requirement at email@example.com.
The Claims are picked up from the last response to Office Action. The mark-ups are removed and the client is provided with a clean claim set. In case there has been an examiner’s amendment, the same is incorporated here.
The Issue Fee payment is populated and shared back.
