Prior Experience Recognition

At the conference celebrating the 10th anniversary of the CEPIUG in Milan, the Supervisory Council of the ISBQPIP announced the opening of the 3 month window for application for Prior Experience Recognition (Grandparenting).

The PER application period will start on December 10, 2018 and will last until March 11, 2019 (11:59 pm Central European Time).

For detailed information on the procedure please check the Articles and Rules (see especially Rule 18 and 19), as well as the draft application form (which will be replaced by the official form at the start of said period) which can be downloaded from this page.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions are provided on the PER FAQ page.

The initial invitation will be restricted to patent information professionals who reside either in the United States of America or in Europe (i.e. any European country that is a member state or extension state of the European Patent Organisation)(*). There will be no further opportunities to apply for Prior Experience Recognition for people who reside in Europe or the USA. After the closing date, one can only become QPIP by successfully passing the examination. Please note that applications received by the ISBQPIP before the time window is open, will be discarded.
(*)This regional limitation is applied because the ISBQPIP will have limited capacity to receive applications. It is planned that later a similar opportunity will be provided for other countries.
