The Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) speeds up the examination process for corresponding applications that are filed in participating property offices. Under the PPH, participating parties agree that when an applicant receives a final ruling from a first patent office allowing at least one claim, the applicant may request a fast track examination of corresponding claims in a corresponding patent application that may be pending in a second patent office. The PPH process will thus fast track examination procedures amongst participating patent offices, allowing applicants to realize a final disposition of a patent application more rapidly and more efficiently than standard examination procedures.
