- (1) The deletion of specified goods or services, or the entire description of the nature of the collective membership organization, from the identification;
- (2) The deletion of a basis in a multiple-basis application; and
- (3) A change of attorney or change of address.
- (b) Other amendments may be entered during this period only with the express permission of the Director, after consideration on petition under § 2.146.
