    The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will submit 
to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the 
following proposal for collection of information under the provisions 
of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Burden: 103,750 hours annually.

    Average Hours Per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take 
the public approximately six minutes (0.10 hours) to six hours to 
gather the necessary information, prepare the form or sequence listing,

amino acid sequence disclosures must include a copy of the sequence 
listing in accordance with the requirements in 37 CFR 1.821-1.825. 
Applicants may submit sequence listings for both U.S. and international

at the USPTO, the applicant may submit a statement identifying the 
application and CRF sequence listing that is already on file rather 
than having to submit a duplicate copy of the CRF listing for the new 
application. The USPTO is proposing to add a new form to this 
collection, Request for Transfer of a Computer Readable Form Under 37 
CFR 1.821(e) (PTO/SB/93), in order to assist customers in submitting 
this statement.
