The PTAB’s Standard Operating Procedure 2 permits the public to submit nominations for PTAB decisions that an individual believes should be designated as precedential or informative, or to suggest that a decision previously designated as precedential or informative should no longer be designated as such. The PTAB Bar Association’s Trial Committee has developed an internal process to facilitate nomination on behalf of its community of PTAB practitioners and other interested individuals. To submit a request for nomination, please follow the link below and submit the request form. Requests may be made anonymously. Once received, the PTAB Bar Association will consider the request for nomination and determine whether to submit a formal nomination to the PTAB.

The nomination form is available for members and non-members. To access the form, click here: Precedential/Informative/Routine PTAB Decision Nomination.
