1212.10 Space 11: Certification

The application must contain a handwritten, typed, or printed signature certifying that the applicant is authorized to submit the application and that the statements made are correct to the best of that person's knowledge. If the signature is handwritten it must be accompanied by the typed or printed name of that person.

A signature anywhere within the boundaries of space 11 is acceptable; signatures outside space 11 are unacceptable.

The applicant may be either the owner of the mask work or the duly authorized agent of the owner. 37 C.F.R. § 211.4 (B) (2).

A certification date is not required. However, if the application provides a certification date later than the receipt date or precedes the date of first commercial exploitation, the registration specialist will communicate with the applicant to confirm the facts stated on the application.
