Reports on the Disposition of Proposed Generic Issues
To increase openness and provide accountability for the processing of potential Generic Issues (GIs), the GI Program issues reports on the status of proposed GIs. Proposed GIs constitute issues that are in one of the first three stages of the GI resolution process―identification, acceptance, or screening stages. Proposed GI reports will contain status descriptions of those proposed GIs that are active or have been recently closed. The first report on proposed GIs was published in August 2011. The second report on proposed GIs has been updated in January 2013.
