§1.525 Order for ex parte reexamination.
If a substantial new question of patentability is found pursuant to § 1.515
or § 1.520
, the determination will include an order for ex parte reexamination of the patent for resolution of the question. If the order for ex parte reexamination resulted from a petition pursuant to § 1.515(c)
, the ex parte reexamination will ordinarily be conducted by an examiner other than the examiner responsible for the initial determination under § 1.515(a)
The notice published in the Official Gazette under § 1.11(c)
will be considered to be constructive notice and ex parte reexamination will proceed.
