This high-level policy dialogue will provide member states in the Asia-Pacific region with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the different approaches to patent examiner training, thus giving smaller offices details of strategic considerations in terms of examination practices. The activity will also encourage discussion on ways to develop and implement strategies on managing an office’s search and examination workload, whilst meeting quality and pendency commitments.
