The Biotechnology, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership was developed to create a collaborative forum for USPTO customers in these industry sectors to share ideas, experience, 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:

• International Patent Cooperation Featuring Global Dossier
• Enhancing Patent Claims Quality in Biologics
• Supplemental Examination
• Antibody Written Description

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.
