JPO Moving to "Dialogue-Type" Outsourced Search Reporting

According to the Japanese Patent Office's 2005 Annual Report, "the JPO has been gradually shifting the method of delivery from the "Report -type" which is traditional style that the search organization delivers its search result to the JPO by reports in documents to the "Dialog-type" which searchers explain the search results directly to examiners and receive advices on search techniques in the face-to-face meeting. The JPO will further pursue its efforts toward shifting the method of report delivery from the Report-type to the Dialog type to enhance efficiency and quality of search outsourcing."
