Accelerated Examination Search
An accelerated examination search (AES) requires comprehensive prior art search of US patents, published patents, and non-patent literature. It requires an applicant to submit a pre-examination report along with the patent application in order to receive the examiner’s final decision within 12 months.
We prepare AES report as per the guidelines defined by USPTO to ensure a fast response from the examiner in prosecuting your patent application. The search helps you to save costs and time for obtaining a patent.
In order to accelerate the examination of patent applications, USPTO has established procedures that required submission of Accelerated Examination Support Document (AESD). AESD provides the required search history and explanation of relevance for the references and their application to the claims, making the issuance of the patent much quicker.
