Correspondence Respecting Patent Applications, Patent Re-examination Proceedings, and Other Proceedings
Under § 1.76 of 37 CFR 1.3.3., an application for a patent must list a correspondence address either as an application data sheet or otherwise in a way that is easily identifiable such as in a paper attached to the application documents. If the applications have no correspondence address, the Office may use the mailing address of the first named inventor.
Every notice, official letters and other information associated with the application will be sent to the correspondence address specified in the form. However, the Office sends an electronic acknowledgment receipt to applicants who applied through its electronic filing system.
