1304 Amendments After D-10 Notice [R-08.2012]

For amendments received after D-10 Notice, see MPEP § 130.

1304.01 Withholding From Issue of “Secrecy Order” Applications [R-08.2012]

“Secrecy Order” applications are not sent to issue even when all of the claims have been allowed. Instead of mailing a Notice of Allowance, a D-10 Notice is sent. See MPEP § 130.

If the “Secrecy Order” in an application is withdrawn after the D-10 notice is mailed, the application should then be treated like an ordinary application in condition for allowance.
