Filing Qualifications: The application must be a utility or plant application filed on or after June 8, 1995. The application cannot be a provisional application, a utility or plant application filed before June 8, 1995, an international application that does not comply with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 371, a design application, or a patent under reexamination.
