608.02(o) Notations Entered on Drawing [R-2]


>Drawings are no longer endorsed with an application number or receipt date.< A draftsperson's "stamp" to indicate approval is no longer required on patent drawings, and these stamps are no longer used by draftspersons. If the drawings in an allowed application are not indicated as having been disapproved or canceled, the most-recently filed drawings will be used for printing the patent.
