PPH Statistical Data

Definitions:

  • (1)Grant Rate = (# of decisions to grant a patent)/((# of decisions of grant a patent)+(# of decisions of refusal)+(# of withdrawal and abandonment after first office action))
  • (2)First Action Allowrance Rate = (# of decisions to grant a patent as first office action)/((# of decisions to grant a patent)+(#of decisions of refusal)+(# of withdrawal and abandonment after first office action))
  • (3)Average Pendency from PPH Request to First Office Action is the average pendency of application for which first office action was issued during the period.
  • (4)Average Pendency from PPH Request to Final Decision is the average pendency of application for which final decision was issued during the period.
  • (5)Average Number of Office Actions = (total # of office actions of all the applications for which final decision was issued during a period)/(# of application for which final decision was issued during the period)
    *1Final decisions are NOT counted as office actions.
    *2Decisions in appeals are not included.

Notes;
1. Grant Rate = (# of decisions to grant a patent)/((# of decisions of grant a patent)+(# of withdrawal and abandonment after first office action)). This definition reflects that examination in Australia generally results in one of three outcomes: acceptance, withdrawal or abandonment, but not refusal.
2. Grant Rate = (# of decisions to grant a patent) / ((# of decisions to grant a patent) + (# of decisions of refusal) + (# of withdrawal and abandonment after first office action)+(# of withdrawal and abandonment prior to first office action))
