When Amendments are OPI

Date Published

Where a specification is amended prior to becoming open to public inspection (OPI), then upon notification that the specification is OPI, both the unamended and the amended forms of the specification are OPI. Similarly, where a specification is amended after notification that it is OPI, the amended form of the specification is also OPI. Proposed or requested amendments are OPI when the complete specification becomes OPI, whether or not they have been allowed.
