Beschleunigte Prüfung und Beschleunigtes Einspruchsverfahren

Compared to the regular examination system, examination results under accelerated system come out more quickly. The average FA pendency under the accelerated system is about 1.9 months, which is much shorter than under the regular system. Also, where an accelerated appeal examination is requested, an appeal decision is made and dispatched within 3.3 months (on average) from the date that accelerated appeal examination is requested and appeal proceeding becomes possible.
This system can be applied by Internationally-filed applications that fit one of the following:
a) Applications that have been filed with both the JPO and at least one of foreign IP Offices;
b) Applications that have been filed with the IP Office as the Receiving Office under the PCT and then entered into the national phase in Japan; and
c) Applications that have been filed with the JPO as domestic applications and also filed with the Receiving Office under the PCT.
