Automated Interview Request (AIR) In USPTO Practice

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

The USPTO AIR form is available on our website at: http://www.uspto.gov/patent/laws-and-regulations/interview-practice

This type of interview request complies with the written authorization requirement for Internet communication in accordance with MPEP §502.03. This authorization will be in effect until the Applicant provides a written withdrawal of authorization to the Examiner of record.
