File Wrappers


I already have the copy of the request for examination. Is it possible to obtain the documents added to an electronic file wrapper after the request for examination?


Yes, it is possible. Just specify in your order that you only need "documents after the request for examination."

Similarly, if you already have the copy of the first notification of reasons for refusal and need only the documents after it, specify as "documents after the notification of reasons for refusal on MM/DD/YYYY" when you order. (The "MM/DD/YYYY" represents the date of notification).

Note that even if there are no documents added to the file wrapper after the document you specified, the inspection fee (600 yen) and the basic fee (263 yen) will be charged, and only the document list will be delivered.
