The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is issuing electronic patent grants (eGrants) for all patents with an issue date on or after April 18, 2023. Patent grants will no longer be issued on paper, and as a result, they will no longer be mailed to the correspondence address of record as part of the patent issuance process. Instead, the patentee will be able to view and print the complete issued patent from Patent Center immediately upon issue. During a transition period, the USPTO will provide a paper copy of the electronic patent grant as a ceremonial copy, delivered to the patentee’s correspondence address of record. The electronic patent grant is the official statutory patent grant.
