1611    Issue [R-11.2013]

The preparation of a plant patent application for issue involves the same procedure as for other applications (37 CFR 1.161), with the exception that where there are color drawings, the better one of the two judged, for example, by its sharpness or cleanliness is selected to be printed in the patent.

The International Patent Classification symbols, most recent edition, should be placed on the Issue Classification form of all plant patent applications being sent to issue.

All plant patent applications should contain an abstract when allowed.
