1802.8 (A) (5) Explanation for the Correction

 

If the information in the basic registration was incorrect when the registration was made, the applicant should provide the correct information in the relevant portions of the online application. In addition, the applicant should provide a brief statement that identifies and explains the reason for the correction. This statement should be provided on the Certification screen in the field marked Correction Explanation:

 

• The applicant should identify the section of the basic registration where the incorrect information appears. The applicant may provide the heading for that section, such as “Author Created” or “Material excluded from this claim.” If the spaces on the certificate are numbered, the applicant may also provide the relevant line number, such as “2 (A)” or “6 (B).”

 

• The applicant should provide the incorrect information that appears in the basic registration.

 

• The applicant should provide the correct information that should have been included in the basic registration.

 

If the changes reflected in the supplementary registration are intended to amplify the information in the basic registration, the applicant should complete the Amplification Explanation field. For guidance in completing this portion of the application, see Section 1802.8 (A) (6).
