COVID-19 Prioritized Examination Program Introduced


On June 12, 2020, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced a new COVID-19 prioritized examination program for certain trademark and service mark applications.
Under this new program, the USPTO will accept petitions to advance the initial examination of applications for marks used to identify qualifying COVID-19 medical products and services. Additionally, the USPTO will waive the fee for such petitions.

To qualify for the new program, the application must cover a product that is subject to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for use in the prevention and/or treatment of COVID-19 or a medical or medical research service for the prevention and/or treatment of COVID-19.
