(305) Fastener Insignia Register
To Be Posted On PTO Web Cite
The Patent and Trademark Office is now posting a copy of the Fastener
Insignia Register on its Web cite (http://www.uspto.gov). The register
is available for viewing and downloading, free of charge.
The Fastener Quality Act (15 U.S.C. 5401, et seq.) requires that
certain fasteners bear an identifying insignia for traceability
purposes, and requires the Secretary of Commerce to provide for the
recordation of these insignia. The implementing regulations (15 C.F.R.
280.700, et seq.) direct the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks to
maintain a Fastener Insignia Register. The deadline for compliance with
the Act has been extended to October 25, 1998.
Parties wishing to obtain paper copies of the Register should continue
to send the written request and $20.00 fee to:
Assistant Commissioner for Trademarks
