SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This final rule adjusts our fees in accordance with the applicable provisions of title 35, United States Code, as amended by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, Fiscal Year 2000 (which incorporated the Intellectual Property and Communications Omnibus Reform Act of 1999) (Public Law 106-113). Start Printed Page 49194

Background

Statutory Provisions

Patent fees are authorized by 35 U.S.C. 41 and 35 U.S.C. 376. A fifty percent reduction in the fees paid under 35 U.S.C. 41(a) and (b) by independent inventors, small business concerns, and nonprofit organizations who meet prescribed definitions is required by 35 U.S.C. 41(h)(1).

Subsection 41(f) of title 35, United States Code, provides that fees 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.

Subsection 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 library services.

Section 376 of title 35, United States Code, authorizes the Director to set fees for patent applications filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).

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

Fee Adjustment Level

The patent statutory fees established by 35 U.S.C. 41(a) and (b) will be adjusted on October 1, 2000, to reflect any fluctuations occurring during the previous twelve months in the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers (CPI-U). In calculating these fluctuations, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that the USPTO should use CPI-U data as determined by the Secretary of Labor. In accordance with previous fee-setting methodology, the USPTO uses the Administration's projected CPI-U for the twelve-month period ending September 30, 2000, which is 2.68 percent. Based on this projection, patent statutory fees will be adjusted by 2.68 percent.

Certain patent processing fees established under 35 U.S.C. 41(d), 132(b), 376, and Public Law 103-465 (the Uruguay Round Agreements Act) will be adjusted to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

Four patent service fees that are set by statute will not be adjusted. The four fees that are not being adjusted are the assignment recording fee, printed patent copy fee, photocopy charge fee, and library service fee.

The fee amounts were rounded by applying standard arithmetic rules so that the amounts rounded would be convenient to the user. Fees of $100 or more were rounded to the nearest $10. Fees between $2 and $99 were rounded to an even number so that any comparable small entity fee would be a whole number.

General Procedures

Any fee amount that is paid on or after the effective date of the fee increase will be subject to the new fees then in effect. For purposes of determining the amount of the fee to be paid, the date of mailing indicated on a proper Certificate of Mailing or Transmission, where authorized under 37 CFR 1.8, will be considered to be the date of receipt in our office. A Certificate of Mailing or Transmission under § 1.8 is not proper for items which are specifically excluded from the provisions of § 1.8. Items for which a Certificate of Mailing or Transmission under § 1.8 are not proper include, for example, for filing of Continued Prosecution Applications (CPAs) under § 1.53(d) and other national and international applications for patents. See 37 CFR 1.8(a)(2).

Under 37 CFR 1.10(a), any correspondence delivered by the “Express Mail Post Office to Addressee” service of the United States Postal Service (USPS) is considered filed or received in our office on the date of deposit with the USPS. 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 fees, a discussion of specific sections is set forth below.

Discussion of Specific Rules

37 CFR 1.16 National Application Filing Fees

Section 1.16, paragraphs (a), (b), (d), and (f) through (i), are revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

37 CFR 1.17 Patent Application Processing Fees

Section 1.17, paragraphs (a)(2) through (a)(5), (b) through (e), (m), (r), and (s), are revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

37 CFR 1.18 Patent Issue Fees

Section 1.18, paragraphs (a) through (c), are revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

37 CFR 1.20 Post-Issuance Fees

Section 1.20, paragraphs (e) through (g), are revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

37 CFR 1.21 Miscellaneous Fees and Charges

Section 1.21, paragraph (a)(6), is revised to amend the description to reflect current business practices.

37 CFR 1.492 National Stage Fees

Section 1.492, paragraphs (a), (b), and (d), are revised to adjust fees established therein to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.

Other Considerations

This final rule contains no information collection within the meaning of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. This final rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications sufficient to warrant preparation of a Federalism Assessment under Executive Order 13132 (August 4, 1999).

Prior notice and opportunity for public comment for patent fee changes are not required by the Patent Statute or the Administrative Procedure Act. While the Patent Statute specifically requires that changes to patent fees shall not take effect “until at least 30 days after notice of the fee has been published in the Federal Register and in the Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office,35 U.S.C. 41(g), the statute does not require any additional publication of proposed fee changes. In addition, changes in patent fees are exempted from the notice of proposed rulemaking requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act under 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2), as the establishment of fee amounts is a matter related to agency management.

As prior notice and an opportunity for public comment are not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., are inapplicable.

A comparison of existing and new fee amounts is included as an Appendix to this final rule.
