In August 2006, the USPTO established procedures for accelerated examination of patent applications to reach a decision within 12 months. One requirement of these procedures is the submission of an Accelerated Examination Support Document (AESD).
The Accelerated Examination Search greatly assists in the creation of an AESD by providing the required search history, relevance explanations for references, and application of relevant references to your claims. Cardinal’s detailed search history demonstrates that the search was conducted according to USPTO guidelines for the filing procedure. The search results are formatted to allow copy-and-paste incorporation into your Pre-Examination Search Document and AESD.
