Issue Date

« Back to Glossary Index

The issue date is the date your nonprovisional patent application is issued a grant, after which your nonprovisional patent application is known as a patent.

It’s important to note that once your application issues as a patent, it is no longer possible to file a continuation or a continuation-in-part (CIP) application based on that patent. These types of applications must be filed while the original application is still pending
