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 filing 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

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).
