The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is pleased to announce the USPTO’s next Biotechnology, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership (BCP) Meeting. This BCP meeting expands the long-standing partnership in these industry sectors to customers across the country. The BCP Meeting will be held on June 30, 2016 and will be simultaneously available at locations in the USPTO Headquarters (Alexandria, VA) and the Texas Regional Office (Dallas, TX). During this BCP, participants will be able to interact with Office personnel in person at both locations, or alternatively, via webcast. Please see below for RSVP information on how you can participate.


The Biotechnology, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership was developed to create a collaborative forum for USPTO customers in this industry sector to share ideas, experiences, 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:

  • PTAB AIA Rule

  • Biological Deposit

  • TC1600 Pendency and Statistics

  • Subject Matter Eligibility (New 101 Examples)


Please check back and click here to view the final BCP Agenda once posted. 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.
