appearing in the Official Gazette at 1331 O.G. 54, on June 10, 2008.

European Patent Office as Searching and Examining Authority

   The European Patent Office (EPO) may act as the International Searching
Authority (ISA) for an international application filed with the	United
States Receiving Office or the International Bureau (IB) as Receiving
Office where at least one of the applicants is either a national or
resident of the United States of America. However, the EPO is no longer
a competent ISA, within the meaning of PCT Article 16(3), for
international applications filed by U.S. residents or nationals on or
after 01 March 2002 in the USPTO or IB as a Receiving Office, and where
the application contains one or more claims directed to the field of
business methods. For the definition of what the EPO considers to be
precluded subject matter in the field of business methods, applicants
should see the "Notice from the President of the European Patent
Office", dated 26 November 2001, and which was published as Annex A in
the "Notice Concerning EPO Competence to Act as PCT Authority" in
the Official Gazette at 1255 O.G. 878, on February 19, 2002.

   The European Patent Office may act as the International
Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA) for an international application
filed in the United States Receiving Office or the International Bureau
as Receiving Office where at least one of the applicants is either a
national or resident of the United States of America, provided that the
European Patent Office acted as the International Searching Authority.
However, the EPO is no longer a competent IPEA, within the meaning of
PCT Article 32(3), for international applications filed by U.S.
residents or nationals in the USPTO or IB as a Receiving Office where
the corresponding demand is filed with the EPO on or after 01 March
2002, and where the application contains one or more claims directed to
the fields of business methods.

   The EPO resumed its competence as an International Searching
Authority and International Preliminary Examining Authority, effective
January 1, 2004, for international applications filed by nationals or
residents of the United States of America where the application
contains one or more claims relating to the field of biotechnology.
This change was announced in the Official Gazette at 1277 O.G. 230, on
December 30, 2003.

   The EPO resumed its competence as an International Preliminary
Examining Authority, effective July 1, 2004, for demands filed by U.S.
residents or nationals on or after July 1, 2004, for international
applications filed by nationals or residents of the United States of
America where the application contains one or more claims relating to
the field of telecommunications. This change was announced in the
Official Gazette at 1277 O.G. 230, on December 30, 2003.

   The search fee of the European Patent Office was increased,
effective August 1, 2008, and was announced in the Official Gazette
at 1331 O.G. 161, on June 24, 2008.

Revision of Patent Fees for Fiscal Year 2009
			    DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
		   United States Patent and Trademark Office
			     37 CFR Parts 1 and 41
			 [Docket No. PTO-C02008-0004]
				 RIN 0651-AC21

		 Revision of Patent Fees for Fiscal Year 2009

AGENCY: United States Patent and Trademark Office, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: The United States Patent and Trademark Office (Office) is
adjusting certain patent fee amounts for fiscal year 2009 to reflect
fluctuations in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The patent statute
provides for the annual CPI adjustment of patent fees set by statute to
recover the higher costs associated with doing business. In addition, the
Office is correcting the addresses for maintenance fee payments and
correspondence, and deposit account replenishments.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Walter Schlueter by e-mail at
Walter.Schlueter@uspto.gov, by telephone at (571) 272-6299, or by fax at
(571) 273-6299.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office is adjusting certain patent fee
amounts in accordance with the applicable provisions of title 35, United
States Code, as amended by the Consolidated Appropriations Act (Pub. L.
108-447, 118 Stat. 2809 (2004)). In addition, this final rule changes the
addresses for maintenance fee payments and correspondence, and deposit
account replenishments. The addresses are being changed to reflect the
current addresses that should be used.

BACKGROUND: Statutory Provisions: Patent fees are set by or under the
authority provided in 35 U.S.C. 41, 119, 120, 132(b), 156, 157(a), 255,
302, 311, 376, section 532(a)(2) of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA)
(Pub. L. 103-465, § 532(a)(2), 108 Stat. 4809, 4985 (1994)), and section
4506 of the American Inventors Protection Act of 1999 (AIPA) (Pub. L.
106-113, 113 Stat. 1501, 1501A-565 (1999)). For fees paid under 35 U.S.C.
41(a) and (b) and 132(b), independent inventors, small business concerns,
and nonprofit organizations who meet the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 41(h)(1)
are entitled to a fifty-percent reduction.

   Section 41(d) of title 35, United States Code, authorizes the Director
to establish fees for all other processing, services, or materials related
to patents to recover the average cost of providing these services or
materials, except for the fees for recording a document affecting title,
for each photocopy, for each black and white copy of a patent, and for
standard library service.

   Section 41(f) of title 35, United States Code, provides that fee amounts
established under 35 U.S.C. 41(a) and (b) may be adjusted on October 1,
1992, and every year thereafter, to reflect fluctuations in the CPI over
the previous twelve months.

   Section 41(g) of title 35, United States Code, provides that new fee
amounts established by the Director under 35 U.S.C. 41 may take effect
thirty days after notice in the Federal Register and the Official Gazette
of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

   The fiscal year 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act (section 801 of
Division B) provided that 35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b), and (d) shall be
administered in a manner that revises patent application fees (35 U.S.C.
41(a)) and patent maintenance fees (35 U.S.C. 41(b)), and provides for a
 September 2, 2008 US PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE 1334 OG 46 

separate filing fee (35 U.S.C. 41(a)), search fee (35 U.S.C. 41(d)(1)), and
examination fee (35 U.S.C. 41(a)(3)) during fiscal years 2005 and 2006. See
Pub. L. 108-447, 118 Stat. 2809, 2924-30 (2004). The patent and trademark
fee provisions of the fiscal year 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act were
extended through September 30, 2008, by subsequent legislation. See Pub. L.
110-161, 121 Stat. 1844 (2007), Pub. L. 110-149, 121 Stat. 1819 (2007),
Pub. L. 110-137, 121 Stat. 1454 (2007), Pub. L. 110-116, 121 Stat. 1295
(2007), Pub. L. 110-92, 121 Stat. 989 (2007), Pub. L. 110-5, 121 Stat. 8
(2007), Pub. L. 109-383, 120 Stat. 2678 (2006), Pub. L. 109-369, 120 Stat.
2642 (2006), and Pub. L. 109-289, 120 Stat. 1257 (2006). Legislation is
pending before Congress which, if enacted, would extend the patent and
trademark fee provisions of the fiscal year 2005 Consolidated
Appropriations Act through fiscal year 2009 (through September 30, 2009).
See S. 3182, 110th Cong. (2008).

   Fee Adjustment Level: The patent statutory fee amounts established by 35
U.S.C. 41(a) and (b) are adjusted to reflect fluctuations occurring during
the twelve-month period from October 1, 2007, through September 30, 2008,
correspondingly, in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers
(CPI-U). The Office of Management and Budget has advised that in
calculating these fluctuations, the Office should use CPI-U data as
determined by the Secretary of Labor. In accordance with previous
fee-setting methodology, the Office bases this fee adjustment on the
Administration's CPI-U for the twelve-month period ending September 30,
2008.

   The Office published a notice proposing to adjust the patent fees
charged under 35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b), and (d)(1) for fiscal year 2009 to
reflect fluctuations in the CPI. See Revision of Patent Fees for Fiscal
Year 2009, 73 FR 31655 (June 3, 2008), 1331 Off. Gaz. Pat. Office 97 (June
24, 2008) (proposed rule). While the proposed rule specified fee amounts
based upon a projected CPI-U of 4.0 percent, the proposed rule indicated
that the fee amounts adopted in a final rule may be based upon the actual
fluctuations in the CPI-U as determined by the Secretary of Labor. See
Revision of Patent Fees for Fiscal Year 2009, 73 FR at 31656, 1331-4 Off.
Gaz. Pat. Office at 98. After the date the proposed rule was published, the
projected CPI-U for the twelve-month period prior to the enactment of the
fee amount adjustments has increased from 4.0 percent to 5.0 percent. Thus,
this final rule adjusts the patent fees charged under 35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b),
and (d)(1) by 5.0 percent based upon the current projected fluctuation in
the CPI-U.

   The fee amounts were rounded by applying standard arithmetic rules so
that the amounts rounded will be convenient to the user. Fees for other
than a small entity of $100 or more were rounded to the nearest $10. Fees
of less than $100 were rounded to an even number so that any comparable
small entity fee will be a whole number.

   General Procedures: Any fee amount that is paid on or after the
effective date of the fee adjustment is subject to the new fees in effect.
The amount of the fee to be paid will be determined by the time of filing.
The time of filing will be determined either according to the date of
receipt in the Office (37 CFR 1.6) or the date reflected on a proper
Certificate of Mailing or Transmission, where such a certificate is
authorized under 37 CFR 1.8. Use of a Certificate of Mailing or
Transmission is not authorized for items that are specifically excluded
from the provisions of 37 CFR 1.8. Items for which a Certificate of Mailing
or Transmission under 37 CFR 1.8 is not authorized include, for example,
filing of national and international applications for patents. See 37 CFR
1.8(a)(2).

   Patent-related correspondence delivered by the "Express Mail Post Office
to Addressee" service of the United States Postal Service (USPS) is
considered filed or received in the Office on the date of deposit with the
USPS. See 37 CFR 1.10(a)(1). The date of deposit with the USPS is shown by
the "date-in" on the "Express Mail" mailing label or other official USPS

notation.

   To ensure clarity in the implementation of the new fee amounts and
change of addresses, a discussion of specific sections is set forth below.

Discussion of Specific Rules

   37 CFR 1.1 Addresses for non-trademark correspondence with the United
States Patent and Trademark Office. Section 1.1, paragraph (d), is revised
to change the maintenance fee payment and correspondence address.

   37 CFR 1.16 National application filing, search, and examination fees:
Section 1.16, paragraphs (a) through (e), (h) through (k), and (m) through
(s), is revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations
in the CPI.

   37 CFR 1.17 Patent application and reexamination processing fees:
Section 1.17, paragraphs (a), (l), and (m), is revised to adjust fees
established therein to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

   37 CFR 1.18 Patent post allowance (including issue) fees: Section 1.18,
paragraphs (a) through (c), is revised to adjust fees established therein
to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

   37 CFR 1.20 Post issuance fees: Section 1.20, paragraphs (c)(3), (c)(4),
and (d) through (g), is revised to adjust fees established therein to
reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

   37 CFR 1.25 Deposit accounts: Section 1.25, paragraph (c)(3), is revised

   37 CFR 41.20 Fees: Section 41.20, paragraphs (b)(1) through (b)(3), is
revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations in the
CPI.

   Alternative Fee Amounts if Legislation Extending the Patent and
Trademark Fee Provisions of the Fiscal Year 2005 Consolidated
Appropriations Act is not Enacted: If legislation that would extend the
patent and trademark fee provisions of the fiscal year 2005 Consolidated
Appropriations Act into fiscal year 2009 is not enacted, patent fees under
35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b), and (d) will become the patent fees in effect in the
absence of the fiscal year 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act. In that
event, the Office will publish a final rule adjusting the patent fees under
35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b), and (d) in effect in the absence of the fiscal year
2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act to reflect fluctuations in the
Consumer Price Index (CPI-U). The following table (Table 1) sets out the
fee amounts that would be published in a final rule in the event that
legislation extending the patent and trademark fee provisions of the fiscal
year 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act into fiscal year 2009 is not
enacted.

   Response to Comments: As discussed previously, the Office published a
notice proposing to adjust the patent fees charged under 35 U.S.C. 41(a),
(b), and (d)(1) for fiscal year 2009 to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.
See Revision of Patent Fees for Fiscal Year 2009, 73 FR 31655 et seq.,
1331-4 Off. Gaz. Pat. Office 97 et seq. The Office received one comment
(from an individual) in response to this notice. The comment stated that
small entity fees should not be increased, but rather should be reduced.

   The small entity reduction amounts are provided by 35 U.S.C. 41(h)(1)
("fees charged under [35 U.S.C. 41](a), (b) and (d)(1) shall be reduced by
50 percent with respect to their application to any small business concern
as defined under section 3 of the Small Business Act, and to any
independent inventor or nonprofit organization as defined in regulations
issued by the Director") and 41(h)(3) ("[t]he fee charged under [35 U.S.C.
41](a)(l)(A) shall be reduced by 75 percent with respect to its application
to any entity to which [35 U.S.C. 41(h)(1)] applies, if the application is
filed by electronic means as prescribed by the Director"). The Office has
no authority to change (increase or reduce) the percentage by which the
patent fees charged under 35 U.S.C. 41(a), (b), and (d)(1) are reduced for
small entities. The Office also has no authority to adjust the patent fee
amounts specified in [35 U.S.C. 41](a), (b) and (d)(1) to reflect
fluctuations in the CPI (which is necessary to recover the higher costs
associated with doing business) only with respect to non-small entities.

Rule Making Considerations:

A. Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis:

   1. Description of the reasons that action by the Office is being
considered: The Office is adjusting the patent fees set under 35 U.S.C.
41(a) and (b) to ensure proper funding for effective Office operations. The
patent fee CPI adjustment is a routine adjustment that has generally
occurred on an annual basis to recover the higher costs of the Office's
operations that occur due to the increase in the price of products and
services. The lack of proper funding for effective Office operations would
result in a significant increase in patent pendency levels.

   2. Succinct statement of the objectives of, and legal basis for, the
final rule: The objective of the change is to adjust patent fees set under
35 U.S.C. 41(a) and (b) to recover the higher costs of Office operations.
Patent fees are set by or under the authority provided in 35 U.S.C. 41,
119, 120, 132(b), 156, 157(a), 255, 302, 311, 376, section 532(a)(2) of the
URAA, and 4506 of the AIPA. 35 U.S.C. 41(f) provides that fees established
under 35 U.S.C. 41(a) and (b) may be adjusted every year to reflect
fluctuations in the CPI over the previous twelve months.

   3. Description and estimate of the number of affected small entities:
The Small Business Administration (SBA) small business size standards
applicable to most analyses conducted to comply with the Regulatory
Flexibility Act are set forth in 13 CFR 121.201. These regulations
generally define small businesses as those with fewer than a maximum number
of employees or less than a specified level of annual receipts for the
entity's industrial sector or North American Industry Classification System
(NAICS) code. The Office, however, has formally adopted an alternate size
standard as the size standard for the purpose of conducting an analysis or
making a certification under the Regulatory Flexibility Act for
 September 2, 2008 US PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE 1334 OG 50 

patent-related regulations. See Business Size Standard for Purposes of
United States Patent and Trademark Office Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
for Patent-Related Regulations, 71 FR 67109 (Nov. 20, 2006), 1313 Off. Gaz.
Pat. Office 60 (Dec. 12, 2006). This alternate small business size standard
is the previously established size standard that identifies the criteria
entities must meet to be entitled to pay reduced patent fees. See 13 CFR
121.802. If patent applicants identify themselves on the patent application
as qualifying for reduced patent fees, the Office captures this data in the
Patent Application Location and Monitoring (PALM) database system, which
tracks information on each patent application submitted to the Office.

   Unlike the SBA small business size standards set forth in 13 CFR
121.201, this size standard is not industry-specific. Specifically, the
Office's definition of small business concern for Regulatory Flexibility
Act purposes is a business or other concern that: (1) meets the SBA's
definition of a "business concern or concern" set forth in 13 CFR 121.105;
and (2) meets the size standards set forth in 13 CFR 121.802 for the
purpose of paying reduced patent fees, namely an entity: (a) whose number
of employees, including affiliates, does not exceed 500 persons; and (b)
which has not assigned, granted, conveyed, or licensed (and is under no
obligation to do so) any rights in the invention to any person who made it
and could not be classified as an independent inventor, or to any concern
which would not qualify as a non-profit organization or a small business
concern under this definition. See Business Size Standard for Purposes of
United States Patent and Trademark Office Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
for Patent-Related Regulations, 71 FR at 67112, 1313 Off. Gaz. Pat. Office
at 63.

   The changes in this final rule will apply to any small entity that files
a patent application, or has a pending patent application or unexpired
patent. The changes in this rule specifically apply when an applicant or
patentee pays an application filing or national stage entry fee, search
fee, examination fee, excess or multiple dependent claim fee, application
size fee, extension of time fee, notice of appeal fee, appeal brief fee,
request for an oral hearing fee, disclaimer fee, petition to revive fee,
issue fee, or patent maintenance fee. The following table (Table 2)
indicates the applicable fee, the number of small entity payments of the
fee received by the Office in fiscal year 2007 (number of small entities
who paid the applicable fee in fiscal year 2007), the current small entity
fee amount, the new small entity fee amount, and the net amount of the
small entity fee adjustment.

   The Office has also been advised that a number of small entity
applicants and patentees do not claim small entity status for various
reasons. See Business Size Standard for Purposes of United States Patent
and Trademark Office Regulatory Flexibility Analysis for Patent-Related
Regulations, 71 FR at 67110, 1313 Off. Gaz. Pat. Office at 61. Therefore,
the Office has also considered all other entities paying patent fees as
well. The following table (Table 3) indicates the applicable fee, the
number of non-small entity payments of the fee received by the Office in
fiscal year 2007 (number of non-small entities who paid the applicable fee
in fiscal year 2007), the current non-small entity fee amount, the revised
non-small entity fee amount, and the net amount of the non-small entity fee

   4. Description of the reporting, recordkeeping and other compliance
requirements of the final rule, including an estimate of the classes of
small entities which will be subject to the requirement and the type of
professional skills necessary for preparation of the report or record: This
rule does not require any reporting or record keeping or incorporate other
compliance requirements. This rule only adjusts patent fees (as discussed
previously) to reflect changes in the CPI.

   5. Description of any significant alternatives to the final rule which
accomplish the stated objectives of applicable statutes and which minimize
any significant economic impact of the rule on small entities: The
alternative of not adjusting patent fees would have a lesser economic
impact on small entities, but would not accomplish the stated objectives of
applicable statutes. The Office is adjusting the patent fee amounts to
ensure proper funding for effective Office operations. The patent fee CPI
adjustment is a routine adjustment that has generally occurred on an annual
basis to recover the higher costs of the Office's operations that occur due
to the increase in the price of products and services. The lack of proper
funding for effective Office operations would result in a significant
increase in patent pendency levels.

   6. Identification, to the extent practicable, of all relevant Federal
rules which may duplicate, overlap or conflict with the final rules: The
 September 2, 2008 US PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE 1334 OG 57 

Office is the sole agency of the United States Government responsible for
administering the provisions of title 35, United States Code, pertaining to
examination and granting patents. Therefore, no other federal, state, or
local entity shares jurisdiction over the examination and granting patents.

   Other countries, however, have their own patent laws, and an entity
desiring a patent in a particular country must make an application for
patent in that country, in accordance with the applicable law. Although the
potential for overlap exists internationally, this cannot be avoided except
by treaty (such as the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial
Property, or the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT)).

   Nevertheless, the Office believes that there are no other duplicative or
overlapping rules.

   B. Executive Order 13132 (Federalism): This final rule making does not
contain policies with federalism implications sufficient to warrant
preparation of a Federalism Assessment under Executive Order 13132 (Aug. 4,
1999).

   C. Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review): This rule
making has been determined to be significant for purposes of Executive
Order 12866 (Sept. 30, 1993), as amended by Executive Order 13258 (Feb. 26,
2002) and Executive Order 13422 (Jan. 18, 2007).

   D. Executive Order 13175 (Tribal Consultation): This rule making will
not: (1) have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes; (2)
impose substantial direct compliance costs on Indian tribal governments; or
(3) preempt tribal law. Therefore, a tribal summary impact statement is not
required under Executive Order 13175 (Nov. 6, 2000).

   E. Executive Order 13211 (Energy Effects): This rule making is not a
significant energy action under Executive Order 13211 because this rule
making is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply,
distribution, or use of energy. Therefore, a Statement of Energy Effects is
not required under Executive Order 13211 (May 18, 2001).

   F. Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform): This rule making meets
applicable standards to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and
reduce burden as set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order
12988 (Feb. 5, 1996).

   G. Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children): This rule making does
not concern an environmental risk to health or safety that may
disproportionately affect children under Executive Order 13045 (Apr. 21,
1997).

   H. Executive Order 12630 (Taking of Private Property): This rule making
will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking
implications under Executive Order 12630 (Mar. 15, 1988).

   I. Congressional Review Act: Under the Congressional Review Act
provisions of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of
1996 (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), the United States Patent and Trademark Office
has submitted a report containing the final rule and other required
information to the United States Senate, the United States House of
Representatives and the Comptroller General of the Government
Accountability Office. The changes in this final rule will not result in an
annual effect on the economy of 100 million dollars or more, a major
increase in costs or prices, or significant adverse effects on competition,
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of United
States-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises in
domestic and export markets. Therefore, this final rule is not a "major
rule" as defined in 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

   J. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995: The changes in this final rule
 September 2, 2008 US PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE 1334 OG 58 

do not involve a Federal intergovernmental mandate that will result in the
expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, of
100 million dollars (as adjusted) or more in any one year, or a Federal
private sector mandate that will result in the expenditure by the private
sector of 100 million dollars (as adjusted) or more in any one year, and
will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no
actions are necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform
Act of 1995. See 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.

   K. National Environmental Policy Act: This rule making will not have any
effect on the quality of environment and is thus categorically excluded
from review under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. See 42
U.S.C. 4321 et seq.

   L. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act: The requirements of
section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of
1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) are inapplicable because this rule making does
not contain provisions which involve the use of technical standards.

   M. Paperwork Reduction Act: This rule involves information collection
requirements which are subject to review by the Office of Management and
Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et
seq.). The collections of information involved in this rule have been
reviewed and approved by OMB under OMB control numbers 0651-0016,
0651-0021, 0651-0031, 0651-0032, and 0651-0033. The Office is not
resubmitting information collection packages to OMB for its review and
approval at this time but will update the fee amounts for existing
information collection requirements associated with the information
collections under OMB control numbers 0651-0016, 0651-0021, 0651-0031,
0651-0032, and 0651-0033. The Office will submit fee revision changes for
OMB control numbers 0651-0016, 0651-0021, 0651-0031, 0651-0032, and
0651-0033 at the time these collections are resubmitted to OMB for renewal.

   Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to
respond to nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply
with a collection of information subject to the requirements of the
Paperwork Reduction Act unless that collection of information displays a
currently valid OMB control number.

	     MAIL TO THE UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE

	      MAIL TO BE DIRECTED TO THE COMMISSIONER FOR PATENTS

   For most correspondence (e.g., new patent applications) no mail stop

If NO mail stop is included on the list below, no mail stop is required
for the correspondence. See the listing under "Special Mail Stops
Applicable To Both Patent And Trademark Mail" for additional mail stops
for patent-related correspondence.  Only the specified type of document
should be placed in an envelope addressed to one of these special mail
stops. If any documents other than the specified type identified for each
special mail stop are addressed to that mail stop, they will be
significantly delayed in reaching the appropriate area for which they are
intended. The mail stop should generally appear as the first line in
the address.

   Some correspondence may be submitted electronically. See the Office's
Internet Web site http://www.uspto.gov for additional information.

(USPS) as follows:
