(336) Notice of Recent Amendment to Filing Receipt Adding Indication Regarding Request to Retrieve Priority Application The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is in the process of designing and building a priority document exchange system (PDX). Under PDX, an applicant, under certain circumstances, will be able to request that the USPTO electronically retrieve a copy of a foreign priority application at no charge to the applicant. In the early planning stages of PDX, the USPTO anticipated that PDX would be in full production by May of 2006. Accordingly, the latest update of the filing receipt was configured some time ago to include an indication as to whether or not an acceptable request to retrieve a priority application under PDX had been received. Unfortunately, due to coordination difficulties, PDX deployment has been delayed by several months. The USPTO is in the process of deleting the request to retrieve information from the filing receipt until the time of PDX deployment. However, there will be numerous filing receipts printed in the month of May 2006 that will include the request to retrieve text. Until further notice, applicants should disregard any indication regarding a request to retrieve priority application that is included on their filing receipts. When PDX is launched, the USPTO will post a notice fully explaining how and under what circumstances an applicant may take advantage of it. The PDX information currently being included on the filing receipt is located next to the foreign application listing as follows: Foreign Applications Acceptable Request to Application Received? Retrieve Priority (foreign priority NO numbers and dates are indicated here) Due to some formatting problems the text from the Request to Retrieve (PDX) indication carries over to the next line and appears beneath the indication of Foreign Applications. Please disregard any such request to retrieve information until further notice. Inquiries concerning this notice may be directed to Deborah L. Kyle, Project Manager, Search and Information Administration, at (571) 272-3377, or Diana L. Oleksa, Special Program Examiner, Patent Cooperation Treaty Legal Administration at (571)-272-3291.
