A number of bilateral agreements have been signed between Rospatent and other patent Offices to enable patent applicants to request a fast-track examination procedure where patent examiners can make use of the work products from the other Office(s). These work products can include positive results of the written opinion of the International Searching Authority, the written opinion of the International Preliminary Examining Authority or the international preliminary examination report issued within the framework of the PCT. By requesting that their applications be processed under this procedure, applicants can generally obtain patents more quickly before participating Offices.
