Doc Code: REQ.MIS.PART Document Description: Certification and Request for Missing Parts Pilot PTO/$,$/421 (-1) CERTIFICATION AND REQUEST FOR EXTENDED MISSING PARTS PILOT PROGRAM (Page 1 of 2) First Named Inventor: Title of Invention: Nonprovisional Application Number (if known): APPLICANT HEREBY CERTIFIES THE FOLLOWING AND REQUESTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EXTENDED MISSING PARTS PILOT PROGRAM FOR THE ABOVE-IDENTIFIED APPLICATION. 1. This certification and request is being filed with the nonprovisional application. The application is an original nonprovisional utility or plant application filed under 35 U.S.C. 111(a) within the duration of the pilot program. The following are excluded from the program: design applications, provisional applications, national stage applications, PCT international applications, reissue applications, and reexamination proceedings. The application directly claims the benefit of a provisional application filed within the previous 12 months. Applicant is including the benefit claim to the provisional application in an applicDtion data sheet (see 37 CFR 1.78). A nonpublication request is not included. By filing this certification and request, applicant also acknowledges the following: A nonprovisional application must have a specification including at least one claim and a drawing(s) if necessary for an understanding of the invention to be entitled to a filing date (see 35 U.S.C. 111(a)) and thus be eligible for the pilot program. The nonprovisional application as originally filed must have a complete disclosure that complies with the enablement and written description requirements of 35 U.S.C. 112, first paragraph, which is sufficient to support the claims submitted on filing and any claims submitted later during prosecution. New matter cannot be added to an application after the filing date of the application. See 35 U.S.C. 132(a). Provisional rights to a reasonable royalty under 35 U.S.C. 154(d) may only be available if the claims that are published in the patent application publication are substantially identical to the patented claims that are infringed (if a patent is granted). Therefore, applicant may wish to consider the benefits of submitting a complete set of claims on filing of the nonprovisional application. Any foreign application (or international application) must still be filed within 12 months of the provisional application's filing date if applicant wishes to rely on the provisional application in the foreign application (or international application). Any patent term adjustment (PTA) accrued by applicant based on certain administrative delays by the USPTO is offset by a reduction for failing to reply to a notice by the USPTO within three months. See 37 CFR 1.704(b). Thus, if applicant replies to a notice to file missing parts more than three months after the mailing date of the notice, the additional time that applicant takes to reply to the notice will be treated as an offset to any positive PTA accrued by the applicant. In no event will a reduction under 37 CFR 1.704(b) reduce the 20-year patent term (if a patent is granted). For more information on patent term, see MPEP § 2701. A general authorization to charge fees, or a specific authorization to charge the search, examination, and/or excess claims fees to a deposit account, should not be submitted if participation in the pilot program is desired. Fees are subject to change and the fees that are due are the fees in effect at the time of fee payment. Therefore, if the search fee, examination fee, excess claims fees, and/or the surcharge (or any other fees) have increased after the mailing of a Notice to File Missing Parts, applicant will be required to pay the increased fee amounts. Applicants should consult the current fee schedule on the USPTO Web site before paying any fees that are due. 2. 3. 4.

Applicant acknowledges that if the application is not in condition for publication, applicant will be required to place the application in condition for publication within two months (extendable under 37 CFR 1.136) of notification.
