USPTO Modifies Declaration to Permit Access to Application by Foreign Patent Offices

According to a notice from the USPTO published on February 13, 2008 (via Patent Docs),
the USPTO has modified its Declaration form (PTO/SB/01) to include a checkbox which provides the applicant with the option to preauthorize the EPO and JPO to access its US application(s) [in order to obtain priority dcouments]. Essentially, this updated Declaration form bypasses the need to file a separate form PTO/SB/39, "Authorization to Permit Access to Application by Participating Offices."

The requirement for a seprate paper has also been formally waived. However a new PTO/SB/39 (more information here) has also been provided for applicants that prefer to continue filing a separate paper. The new PTO/SB/39 form has also been modified in several othr respects, including a specific statement that "access be provided to information concerning the date of filing the Authorization to Permit Access to Application by Participating Offices" which is sometimes of critical significance to the JPO.

Other modifications to the USPTO Forms in February 2008 include:
