Chapter 35). Agency: United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Title: Rules for Patent Maintenance Fees. Form Number(s): PTO/SB/45/47/65/ 66. Agency Approval Number: 0651– 0016. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Burden: 30,362 hours annually. Number of Respondents: 374,706 responses per year. Avg. Hours Per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the public approximately 20 seconds (0.006 hours) PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to eight hours to complete this information, depending on the form or petition. This includes time to gather the necessary information, prepare the form or petition, and submit the completed request. Needs and Uses: Under 35 U.S.C. 41 and 37 CFR 1.20(e)–(i) and 1.362–1.378, the USPTO charges maintenance fees for keeping utility patents in force. Maintenance fee payments are due at 31⁄2, 71⁄2, and 111⁄2 years after the date the patent was granted. If the payment of the appropriate maintenance fee is not received within a grace period of six months following each of the above intervals, the patent will expire and no longer be enforceable. The public uses this collection to submit patent maintenance fee payments, to file petitions regarding delayed or refused payments, and to designate an address to be used for fee-related correspondence. The USPTO uses this information to process and record maintenance fee payments, to consider related petitions, and to send fee correspondence to the correct address. This information collection includes forms for submitting a maintenance fee payment, filing a petition to accept an unavoidably or unintentionally delayed maintenance fee payment, and designating a separate address for fee correspondence with the USPTO. The USPTO does not provide an official form for petitions to review refusals to accept payments of maintenance fees prior to patent expiration or for petitions to review refusals to accept delayed payments of maintenance fees in expired patents.
