Patent Office Creates New Automated Interview Request (AIR) Tool

The USPTO AIR is a new online interview scheduling tool that allows Applicants to request an interview with an Examiner for their pending patent application.

The USPTO AIR form is available here [1].

This is the type of 21st Century Government we’ve all been longing for.  You can fill out a very quick, simple form, propose a time and day for an interview with the examiner, digitally sign and you’re done.  Beautiful!

If you have questions or need assistance with the USPTO AIR form or with interview practice at the USPTO, you may contact an Interview Specialist [2] or send an email to ExaminerInterviewPractice@USPTO.GOV [3].
