Title 37 published on 05-Jun-2018 04:18
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 37 CFR Part 404 after this date.
This final rule reduces regulatory burdens by clarifying electronic reporting, updating certain sections to conform with changes in the patent laws, and streamlining the licensing application process for some Federal laboratory collaborators, makes technical corrections, clarifies the role of provisional patent application filing, explains a unique situation that may be appropriate for a Determination of Exceptional Circumstances, clarifies the role of funding agencies in the Bayh-Dole process, and addresses subject inventions as to which a Federal laboratory employee is a co-inventor.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) requests comments on proposed revisions to regulations. The proposed revisions make technical corrections, update certain sections to conform with changes in the patent laws, clarify the role of provisional patent application filing, create a new Determination of Exceptional Circumstances, increase the role of Funding Agencies in the Bayh-Dole process, address subject inventions as to which a Federal laboratory employee is a co-inventor, and streamline the licensing application process for some Federal laboratory collaborators. NIST will hold a public meeting and simultaneous webinar regarding the proposed changes on November 21, 2016.
The Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce, issues a final rule that amends regulations to reflect the abolishment of the Technology Administration and the resulting redelegations of authority.
