NOTE: 



ling paper or fee) 

Each paper must have its own certificate and thVExpress Mail" label number as a part thereof or attached 
thereto. When, as here, the certification is presented on a separate sheet, that sheet must (1) be signed and (2) 
fully identify and be securely attached to the paper or fee it accompanies. Identification should include the 
serial number and filing date of the application as well as the type of paper being filed, e.g. complete 
application, specification and drawings, responses to rejection or refusal, notice of appeal, etc. If the serial 
number of the application is not known, the identification should include at least the name of the inventor(s) 
and the title of the invention. 

The label number need not be placed in each page. It should, however, be placed on the first page of each 
separate document, such as, a new application, amendment, assignment, and transmittal letter for a fee, along 
with the certificate of mailing by "Express Mail." Although the label number may be on checks, such a 
practice is not required. In order not to deface formal drawings it is suggested that the label number be 
placed on the back of each formal drawing or the drawings be accompanied by a set of informal drawings on 
which the label number is placed.

EXTENSION OF TERM 



NOTE: "Extension of Time in Patent Cases (Supplement Amendments) - If a timely and complete 
response has been filed after a Non-Final Office Action, an extension of time is not required to 
permit filing and/or entry of an additional amendment after expiration of the shortened statutory 
period. 

If a timely response has been filed after a Final Office Action, an extension of time is required to 
permit filing and/or entry of a Notice of Appeal or riling and/or entry of an additional amendment 
after expiration of the shortened statutory period unless the timely-filed response placed the 
application in condition for allowance. Of course, if a Notice of Appeal has been filed within the 
shortened statutory period, the period has ceased to run." Notice of December 10, 1985 (1061 
O.G. 34-35). 

NOTE: See 37 CFR 1.645 for extensions of time in interference proceedings, and 37 CFR 1.550(c) for 
extensions of time in reexamination proceedings.

FEE DEFICIENCY 



NOTE: If there is a fee deficiency and there is no authorization to charge an account, additional fees are 
necessary to cover the additional time consumed in making up the original deficiency. If the 
maximum, six-month period has expired before the deficiency is noted and corrected, the 
application is held abandoned. In those instances where authorization to charge is included, 
processing delays are encountered in returning the papers to the PTO Finance Branch in order to 
apply these charges prior to action on the cases. Authorization to charge the deposit account for 
any fee deficiency should be checked. See the Notice of April 7, 1986, (1065 O.G. 31-33).
