The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is working on an exciting new project to improve the electronic patent application: eMod, the eCommerce Modernization project, which features a unified interface with all of the capabilities from today's tools in a single place, and so much more. Patent Center will replace the Electronic Filing System - Web (EFS-Web) and the Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) system. Join us to learn more about the Patent Center, which will be released in 2017. We will share some wireframes of the new Patent Center tool, share what users can expect in 2017, and gather your feedback. 




  • Examine current patent application filing and viewing process
  • Explain the new Patent Center tool, which will replace EFS-Web and PAIR
  • View screens and mock-ups of the new Patent Center tool, and provide feedback
  • Discuss how the upcoming changes will affect the patent application filing and viewing process in the future
