Status message

There are 3 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 37 CFR 2. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 2.172 Surrender for cancellation.
Upon application by the owner, the Director may permit any registration to be surrendered for cancellation. The application for surrender must be signed by the owner of the registration, someone with legal authority to bind the owner (e.g., a corporate officer or general partner of a partnership), or a practitioner qualified to practice under § 11.14 of this chapter. When a registration has more than one class, one or more entire class(es) but fewer than the total number of classes may be surrendered. Deletion of fewer than all the goods or services in a single class constitutes amendment of the registration as to that class (see§ 2.173), not surrender.
