Box 1450, Alexandria, VA, 22313–1450, or by facsimile to (571) 273–7735, marked to the attention of Robert W. Bahr. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Among other changes, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (section 801 of Division B) provides that 35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b), and (d) shall be administered in a manner that revises patent application fees (35 U.S.C. 41(a)) and patent maintenance fees (35 U.S.C. 41(b)), and provides for a separate filing fee (35 U.S.C. 41(a)), search fee (35 U.S.C. 41(d)(1)), and examination fee (35 U.S.C. 41(a)(3)) during fiscal years 2005 and 2006. The Consolidated Appropriations Act also provides that the Office may, by regulation, provide for a refund of: (1) Any part of the excess claim fee specified in 35 U.S.C. 41(a)(2) for any claim that is canceled before an examination on the merits has been made of the application under 35 U.S.C. 131; (2) any part of the search fee for any applicant who files a written declaration of express abandonment as prescribed by the Office before an examination has been made of the application under 35 U.S.C. 131; and (3) any part of the search fee for any applicant who provides a search report that meets the conditions prescribed by the Office. The Office is proposing to revise the rules of practice to implement the provisions for a refund of the search fee for any applicant who files a written declaration of express abandonment as prescribed by the Office before an PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 35571 examination has been made of the application under 35 U.S.C. 131. Discussion of Specific Rules Title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1, is proposed to be amended as follows: Section 1.138: Section 1.138(c) is amended to change ‘‘section’’ (i.e., § 1.138) to ‘‘paragraph’’ (i.e., § 1.138(c)) to clarify that a petition to expressly abandon an application to avoid publication of an application is filed under § 1.138(c) (rather than § 1.138). Section 1.138 is also amended to include a new paragraph (d), which implements the provision in 35 U.S.C. 41(d)(1)(D) that the Office may provide for a refund of any part of the search fee ‘‘for any applicant who files a written declaration of express abandonment as prescribed by the Director before an examination has been made of the application under [35 U.S.C.] 131.’’ Section 1.138(d) specifically provides that an applicant seeking to abandon an application filed under 35 U.S.C. 111(a) and § 1.53(b) on or after December 8, 2004, to obtain a refund of any search fee paid in the application must submit a petition and declaration of express abandonment in sufficient time to permit the appropriate officials to recognize the abandonment before the application has been taken up for examination. The Office will consider an application to be ‘‘taken up for examination’’ for purposes of 35 U.S.C. 41(d)(1)(D) and § 1.138(d) when the application is placed on the examiner’s docket for action. Since the patent fee provisions of the Consolidated Appropriations Act expire (in the absence of subsequent legislation) on September 30, 2006 (at the end of fiscal year 2006), the patent fee structure provided for in the Consolidated Appropriations Act will be in effect for less than two years (in the absence of subsequent legislation). Thus, the information technology investment necessary to permit an application to be considered ‘‘taken up for examination’’ at some later point in time (e.g., based upon the anticipated time to first action in the class/subclass to which the application is assigned) for purposes of 35 U.S.C. 41(d)(1)(D) and § 1.138(d) is not warranted in the absence of the enactment of legislation which makes the patent fee structure provided for in the Consolidated Appropriations Act permanent. A petition under § 1.138(d) will be granted when it is recognized in sufficient time to process the abandonment before the application has been taken up for examination and will E:\FR\FM\21JNP1.SGM 21JNP1
