Download as PDF 62424 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 206 / Wednesday, October 25, 2006 / Notices burden in the form of capital start-up costs amounts to $8,750,000. In addition, this collection does have mailing costs. Biological deposits are generally shipped to the depository Domestic Overnight by Federal Express (FedEx) and, since depositors are urged to supply frozen or freeze dried material, it must be packed in dry ice, according to a representative from the Patent Department at ATCC. Dry ice itself is considered dangerous goods and requires special packaging. Additional FedEx special handling charges of $60 per shipment apply for temperaturesensitive biological material and also for the dry ice. An average cost for shipping by FedEx Domestic Overnight is estimated to be $75. If the shipment requires pick-up by FedEx, there is an additional charge of $2.50. Special packaging is also required for these shipments. According to DG Supplies Inc., a supplier of infectious and diagnostic goods packaging, frozen infectious shippers are estimated to cost $177.05 per package for specimen shipments requiring refrigeration or dry ice. Therefore, mailing costs average $314.55 per shipment, for a total cost to all the respondents of $1,100,025. The postage cost for a depository seeking recognition is estimated to be $4.05, sent to the USPTO by priority mail through the United States Postal Service. Therefore, the USPTO estimates that the total non-hour respondent cost burden in the form of postage costs amounts to $1,100,929.
