1893.03(f)    Drawings and PCT Rule 11 [R-08.2012]

The drawings for the national stage application must comply with PCT Rule 11. The USPTO may not impose requirements beyond those imposed by the Patent Cooperation Treaty (e.g., PCT Rule 11 ). However, the examiner does have the authority to require new drawings if the drawings were published without meeting all requirements under the PCT for drawings.
