File Wrappers


Is it possible to confirm the total amount of fees for paper-based file wrapper copies before the order ?


The following fees will be charged for file wrapper copies:

* Inspection fees (statutory)
* Basic fees (commission charge)
* Printout fees (per page)

The total number of pages in a file wrapper is not available so that the estimation of printout fee is not possible until the inspection of a file wrapper. But we need your order to be confirmed officially to request inspection to JPO. Your understanding is appreciated.
