1508.6 (A) Deposits Damaged During Contaminants Screening
In some cases the screening for anthrax and other contaminants may damage the deposit. When a deposit is damaged due to this process, a member of the Registration Program will notify the applicant and request a replacement deposit.
The replacement deposit should be submitted to the address specified in the notification from the Office, together with a written declaration confirming that the replacement is identical to the deposit that was previously submitted, including the copyright notice (if appropriate). If the work is approved for registration, the delay in the examination of the work will not affect the effective date of registration.
If the applicant fails to submit a replacement deposit within the time specified in Chapter 600, Section 605.6, the file will be closed.
