The USPTO uses specific codes associated with each type of document filed in a prosecution. For example, a final rejection is associated with the document code "CTFR".  

Using Juristat, you can search for applications that have had a specific type of document filed in their prosecution.

Why is That Useful?

Ever wanted to know how many Track One applications a specific assignee files?  How about how often a client or firm takes advantage of the AFCP 2.0 program? Or maybe you're looking for applications that filed a request to use the First Action Interview program. 

Using the document code filter, you can quickly get a list of applications that likely had documents associated with those programs filed.  

How do I find Document Codes?

The USPTO provides a downloadable list of document codes here. In addition, you can search Juristat's Document Code filter for the document code you're looking for:

Once you've selected the document codes you need, click "Apply" to view a search of applications where any of your selected document codes appear in the image file wrapper.
