Download as PDF rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 209 / Monday, October 29, 2012 / Notices exceed 100 pages. (See 37 CFR 1.52(f).) Under 37 CFR 1.16(s) and 1.492(j) for U.S. applications and international applications entering the U.S. national stage, respectively, if the application, including the sequence listings filed on paper or on a non-compliant electronic medium, exceeds 100 pages, the application size fee is $320 (or $160 for small entities) for each additional 50 pages or fraction thereof. The USPTO estimates that approximately 250 applications from large entities with long sequence listings filed on paper or on a non-compliant electronic medium will incur an average application size fee of $960, and approximately 200 applications from small entities with long sequence listings filed on paper or on a non-compliant electronic medium will incur an average application size fee of $480, for a total of $336,000 per year. As a Receiving Office, the USPTO collects the international filing fee for each international application it receives. The basic international filing fee only covers the first 30 pages of the international application. As a result, a $16 fee per page is added to the international filing fee for each page over 30 pages of an international application including a sequence listing filed on paper or in PDF format. No page fees are triggered by sequence listings that are submitted via EFS-Web in the proper text format. The average length of a sequence listing filed on paper or in PDF format in an international application is 150 pages, which would carry an additional fee of $2,400 if the international application were already at least 30 pages long without the listing. The USPTO estimates that approximately 900 of the 8,500 sequence listings filed per year on paper or in PDF format will be for international applications, for a total of $2,160,000 per year in page fees. Therefore, this collection has a total of $2,496,000 in fees per year. Customers may incur postage costs when submitting a sequence listing to the USPTO by mail. Mailed submissions may include the sequence listing on either paper or CD, the CRF copy of the listing on CD, and a transmittal letter containing the required identifying information. The USPTO estimates that the average postage cost for a paper or CD sequence listing submission will be $5.15 and that 9,000 sequence listings will be mailed to the USPTO per year, for a total postage cost of $46,350 per year. The total annual (non-hour) respondent cost burden for this collection in the form of fees and VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:18 Oct 26, 2012 Jkt 229001 postage costs is estimated to be $2,542,350 per year. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, e.g., the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record. Dated: October 24, 2012. Susan K. Fawcett, Records Officer, USPTO, Office of the Chief Information Officer.
