Electronic Patent Grants
On February 26, 2023, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced that it will be issuing electronic patent grants (referred to as “eGrants”) to patent recipients. This new process of delivering official copies of patent grants will begin on April 18, 2023. Paper versions will continue to be provided through a transition period and then for a fee thereafter.
During the transition period, patent awardees will have access to the eGrant copy and will receive the paper version. A certified copy of the patent may be ordered from the USPTO’s certified copy center for the fee.
For additional information from the USPTO’s website, visit the eGrant webpage.
