Under Section 5 of the Fastener Quality Act of 1999, 15 U.S.C. § 5401 et seq., as implemented in 15 CFR 280.300 et seq., certain industrial fasteners must bear an insignia identifying the manufacturer, and the manufacturer must record this insignia with the USPTO. After a manufacturer submits an application for recordal of the insignia, the USPTO will issue a Certificate of Recordal, which remains active for five years. The USPTO uses this information to maintain the Fastener Insignia Register, which is open to public inspection. The purpose of this collection is to ensure that certain fasteners can be traced to their manufacturers in accordance with the Fastener Quality Act.
