Accelerated examination of a patent application can be obtained by the applicant or any other person who alleges that failure to accelerate it will prejudice their rights.

This process is called a "Special Order". The Special Order process is relatively straightforward. It is granted automatically in response to a request containing an affirmation that the failure to advance the examination would prejudice that person's rights, as well as the payment of a government fee.
