807    Patentability Report Practice Has No Effect on Restriction Practice [R-08.2012]

Patentability report practice (MPEP § 705), has no effect upon, and does not modify in any way, the practice of restriction, being designed merely to facilitate the handling of cases in which restriction cannot properly be required.
