Since the start of the Post-Prosecution Pilot (P3) Program in July 2016, WHIPgroup has participated in dozens of P3 conferences. WHIPgroup has successfully used P3 to advance prosecution of applications towards allowance without resorting to appeals or requests for continued examination (RCE). Although expiration of P3 is slated for January 11, 2017, several technology centers at the USPTO are soon closing, or have already closed, the program as a result of reaching the maximum 200 available P3 conferences. WHIPgroup will continue to evaluate P3 and monitor for any extensions of the program.
