The Biotechnology, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership was developed to create a collaborative forum for USPTO customers in this industry sector to share ideas, experiences, and insights with USPTO staff.  The BCP is intended to be informal in nature and will include participants from across the industry. 


Some of the topics to be discussed by USPTO staff and stakeholders will include:

      Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) Overview

      Trends in Subject Matter Eligibility for Biotechnology Inventions (A Customer Perspective)

      Practitioner's Perspective on 101 as Applied to Biotech Applications

      Third Party Submission

      AIA 130 Declaration

      PCT National Stage Filing Tips

      Double Patenting

 

Please check back and click here to view the final BCP Agenda once posted. The USPTO looks forward to hearing the individual views from its customers and does not intend to use this forum to seek or arrive at any consensus.  This customer partnership is formed with full recognition of the USPTO's responsibility under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), and accordingly, is not established as FACA compliant committee.
