Office Action Weekly Zips API (Version 1)

Metadata Updated: July 15, 2022

The Office Action Retrieval API provides access to the full-text information of Office Actions (bundled as a JSON file in downloadable weekly zip files) issued by patent examiners to applicants during the patent examination process. The Office Action is a written notification to the applicant of the examiners decision on patentability. It generally discloses the reasons for any rejections, objections, or requirements and includes relevant information or references that the applicant may find useful for responding to the examiner and deciding whether to continue prosecuting the application. This api refreshes daily and contains publicly available Office Actions starting with 12 series applications.
