Examination of a patent application is often complicated and long. Its purpose is to issue patent for the application that meets the provisions set in the Law and regulations.
The examination procedure includes correspondence between the applicant and a patent examiner in the patent Office. The examiner issues an action that details his or her reasons for approving or denying patentability of the invention as described and claimed in the application and other requests for amendments to the application.
