FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information should be directed to Raul Tamayo, Senior Legal Advisor, Office of Patent Legal Administration, United States Patent and Trademark Office, P.O. Box 1450, Alexandria, VA 22313–1450; by telephone at 571–272–7728; or by email to Raul.Tamayo@uspto.gov. Additional information about this collection is also available at http://www.reginfo.gov under ‘‘Information Collection Review.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The patent term restoration portion of the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 (Pub. L. 98–417), which is codified at 35 U.S.C. 156, permits the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to extend the term of protection under a patent to compensate for delay during regulatory review and approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:46 May 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 Department of Agriculture. Only patents for drug products, medical devices, food additives, or color additives are potentially eligible for extension. The maximum length that a patent may be extended under 35 U.S.C. 156 is five years. Under 35 U.S.C. 156(d), an application for patent term extension must identify the approved product; the patent to be extended; and the claims included in the patent that cover the approved product, a method of using the approved product, or a method of manufacturing the approved product. 35 U.S.C. 156(d) also requires the application for patent term extension to provide a brief description of the activities undertaken by the applicant during the regulatory review period with respect to the approved product and the significant dates of these activities. Under 35 U.S.C. 156(e), an interim extension may be granted if the term of an eligible patent for which an application for patent term extension has been submitted would expire before a certificate of extension is issued. The USPTO administers 35 U.S.C. 156 through 37 CFR 1.710–1.791. These rules provide for the public to, inter alia, submit 35 U.S.C. 156 patent term extension applications to the USPTO, request interim extensions and review of final eligibility decisions, and withdraw an application requesting a patent term extension after it is submitted. Separate from the extension provisions of 35 U.S.C. 156, the USPTO may in some cases extend the term of an original patent due to certain delays in the prosecution of the patent application, including delays caused by interference proceedings, secrecy orders, or appellate review by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board or a Federal court in which the patent is issued pursuant to a decision reversing an adverse determination of patentability. The patent term provisions of 35 U.S.C. 154(b), as amended by Title IV, Subtitle D of the Intellectual Property and Communications Omnibus Reform Act of 1999, require the USPTO to notify the applicant of the patent term adjustment in the notice of allowance and give the applicant an opportunity to request reconsideration of the USPTO’s patent term adjustment determination. The USPTO may also reduce the amount of patent term adjustment granted if delays were caused by an applicant’s failure to make a reasonable effort to respond within three months of the mailing date of a communication from the USPTO. Applicants may PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31885 petition for reinstatement of a reduction in patent term adjustment with a showing that, in spite of all due care, the applicant was unable to respond to a communication from the USPTO within the three-month period. The USPTO administers 35 U.S.C. 154 through 37 CFR 1.701–1.705. The information in this collection is used by the USPTO to consider whether an applicant is eligible for a patent term extension or reconsideration of a patent term adjustment and, if so, to determine the length of the patent term extension or adjustment. The USPTO is updating this information collection to remove one item, the Request for Recalculation of Patent Term Adjustment in View of Wyeth (PTO/SB/131), because the information is no longer being collected. The USPTO is also removing the fees associated with the information requirements in this collection because these fees have been moved into information collection 0651–0072, which was approved by OMB in January 2013 in conjunction with the USPTO rulemaking ‘‘Setting and Adjusting Patent Fees’’ (RIN 0651–AC54). II. Method of Collection By mail, facsimile, hand delivery, or electronically to the USPTO. III. Data OMB Number: 0651–0020. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits; not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,950 responses per year. The USPTO estimates that approximately 25% of these responses will be from small entities. Estimated Time per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the public from 1 to 25 hours, depending on the complexity of the situation, to gather the necessary information, prepare the appropriate documents, and submit the information to the USPTO. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 7,252 hours. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Cost Burden: $2,690,492. The USPTO expects that the information in this collection will be prepared by attorneys at an estimated rate of $371 per hour. Therefore, the USPTO estimates that the respondent cost burden for this collection will be approximately $2,690,492 per year. E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM 28MYN1
