Managing prior art citations in patent families & creating an IDS Form. Quality IDS reports delivered within 1-2 business days.

The Information Disclosure Statement (IDS) describes all prior art or related technology claimed in a patent application. If an application doesn't have this statement or fails to include key prior art, any issued patent may become invalid or considered fraudulent. We enter, maintain and update prior art and reference data and also prepare and assemble IDS filings for USPTO.

A QPIDS (Quick Path Information Disclosure Statement) submission may only be filed after payment of the issue fee and before issuance of the patent. Thus, a QPIDS submission may not be filed on the same date or before the date the issue fee is paid, and a QPIDS submission may not be filed on the same date or after the date the patent issues.

BarcodeIP is a paralegal and secretarial support services firm. Our approach is based on understanding a Client’s needs, following a defined process, achieving the desired results and working towards continual improvement.

In U.S., an applicant has a duty to file IDS enclosing all information material to the Patentability of the invention to the USPTO. Failure to comply with this requirement may lead to patent invalidation. Similarly, in Europe and China, only the copy of prior art search/patent examination reports shall be provided to the concerned patent office upon request. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in withdrawal of application. However, in India, as per Section 8(1) of the Patent Act, 1970 mandates an applicant to voluntary furnish Form 3 mentioned under Second Schedule of the Patent Rules, 2003.

We can assist in not just preparing IDS(es), but equally on gathering prior art search/patent examination reports needed in countries like India, China and Europe.
