About the Global Dossier Initiative
Global Dossier is a set of business services aimed at modernizing the global patent system and delivering benefits to all stakeholders through a single portal/user interface. These business services of Global Dossier are being delivered incrementally.
In Spring 2015, the USPTO examiners were given access to the dossier information of the related IP5 applications. In June 2015, the USPTO became a providing Office, allowing access to US dossiers through IP5 Global Dossier User Interfaces. On November 20, 2015, the USPTO-hosted User Interface for Global Dossier was released, giving public stakeholders Dossier Access, which will make it easier for patent applicants to quickly and easily view, monitor, and manage intellectual property (IP) protection around the world by providing access to the dossiers of related applications filed at participating offices.
