PTO/SB/444 (07-16) CERTIFICATION AND REQUEST FOR CONSIDERATION UNDER THE POST-PROSECUTION PILOT PROGRAM (P3) Practitioner Docket No.: Application No.: Filing Date: First Named Inventor: Title: APPLICANT HEREBY CERTIFIES THE FOLLOWING AND REQUESTS CONSIDERATION UNDER THE P3 OF THE ACCOMPANYING RESPONSE UNDER 37 CFR 1.116. 1. The above-identified application is (i) an original utility non-provisional application filed under 35 U.S.C. 111(a), (ii) an international utility application that has entered the national stage in compliance with 35 U.S.C. 371(c), or (iii) a continuing utility application (e.g., a continuation or divisional application). The above-identified application contains an outstanding final rejection. This request is being filed within two (2) months from the mailing date of the final rejection and prior to filing a notice of appeal. Submitted herewith is a response under 37 CFR 1.116 to the outstanding final rejection. The response, exclusive of any amendment, comprises no more than five (5) pages of arguments. (OPTIONAL) The response also includes a proposed non-broadening amendment to a claim(s). 5. 6. 2. 3. 4. Applicant is willing and available to participate in the P3 conference. This request is being filed electronically using the Office's electronic filing system (EFS-Web). Reissue, design, and plant applications, as well as reexamination proceedings, are not eligible to participate in the P3. There is no fee required to request consideration under the P3. Entry of any proposed amendment, affidavit, or other evidence after a final Office action is governed by 37 CFR 1.116. See MPEP 714.12. If applicant is unable to schedule the conference within ten calendar days from the date the Office first contacts applicant, the request will be deemed improper. If a request is deemed improper for any reason, a conference will not be held. The response and any proposed amendment filed with the request will be treated under 37 CFR 1.116 in the same manner as any non-P3 response to a final rejection. Once a P3 request has been accepted, no additional response under 37 CFR 1.116 to the same final rejection will be entered, unless the examiner has requested the additional response because the examiner agrees that it would place the application in condition for allowance. The filing of a P3 request will not toll the six-month statutory period for reply to the final rejection. To avoid abandonment, further action, such as the filing of a notice of appeal or RCE, will need to be taken within the sixmonth statutory period for responding to the final rejection, unless applicant receives written notice from the Office that the application has been allowed or that prosecution is being reopened.
