The USPTO has been working hard to meet the statutory deadlines for implementing provisions of the AIA.

AIPLA's AIA Implementation Task Force

To assist the USPTO, and to share the views of our diverse membership, AIPLA formed a task force to draft and submit comments to the USPTO on proposed rules.

The task force was split into three sub-groups to deal with specific implementation issues: Patent Office Practice Issues, Post-Grant Review Issues, and Other Administrative Issues. Using the links below, you can find proposed rules, AIPLA comments, and final rules for each category.

You can follow the implementation timeline for the different sections of the America Invents Act using the USPTO's rulemaking status chart.

AIA Studies

Additionally, AIPLA has provided commentary on the studies mandated by Congress when they enacted the AIA.
