PTAB:

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s (formerly BPAI-Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences) duties include review of adverse decisions of patent examiner, review of appeals from the applicant for re-examinations, derivation proceedings; inter partes and post-grant reviews, and rendering decisions on interferences.

Board members

The PTAB constitutes of The Director, the Deputy Director, the Commissioner for Patents, the Commissioner for Trademarks, and the administrative patent judges.

The secretary, in the Director’s discretion, shall appoint the Administrative patent judges of competent legal knowledge and scientific ability, to hear and decide appeals from decisions of primary examiners as well as to reissue and re-examine patents.

Leahy-Smith America Invents Act

Leahy-Smith America Invents Act – is a new act that made some significant changes in the AIA effective from September 16, 2011, particularly shifting from the "First-to-Invent" (FTI)” to the "First-Inventor-to-File (FITF)”. It also added post-grant review and interpartes review and eliminated interference proceedings.

Three member panel

Unlike before, now only the PTAB can permit rehearings. Also, a panel with a minimum of three Administrative patent judges appointed by the Director shall hear post-grant review, inter partes review and patent interferences.
