OMB 0651-0063

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB or Board) is established by statute under 35 U.S.C. Section 6. This statute directs that PTAB "shall on written appeal of an applicant, review adverse decisions of examiners upon applications for patent and shall determine priority and patentability of invention in interferences." PTAB has the authority, under pre-AIA sections of the Patent Act, i.e. 35 U.S.C. Sections 134, 135, 306, and 315, to decide ex parte and inter partes appeals and interferences. The information in this information collection can be submitted in paper or electronically. In this renewal, the USPTO is adding the Petitions to the Chief Administrative Patent Judge Under 37 CFR 41.3 into the information collection, in addition to adjusting the responses, burden hours, and annual (non-hour) costs. The USPTO expects that businesses or other for-profits and non-profit institutions will mainly respond to this information collection, in addition to individuals or households.
