Patent Examiners are tasked with being the gatekeepers of patent applications. Cooperation between Applicants and Examiners is crucial to maintaining a high quality patent system.
It would be helpful if PAIR (or any successor system) would be able to easily provide detailed information about a patent examiner in a centralized location. Such information can include:
* Location (e.g., Hotelling, Jefferson building, Randolph building, ...)
* Ability for in-person interview? (e.g., Yes/No or dates available for in-person interviews)
* Signatory Authority ? (Authority to come to agreement in an interview?)
* Phone Number
* Fax Number
* Email Address
Additionally, it might be useful to see a list of any pending applications filed under the same customer number that are also being examined by the same examiner.
