The public uses this information collection to grant or revoke power of attorney, to withdraw as attorney or agent of record, to authorize a practitioner to act in a representative capacity, to change a correspondence address, to request a Customer Number, and to change the data associated with a Customer Number. The USPTO's Customer Number practice permits applicants, assignees, practitioners of record, and third party requesters to change the correspondence address or representatives of record for a number of applications, patents, or reexamination proceedings with one change request instead of filing separate requests for each application, patent, or reexamination proceeding. The USPTO uses the information in this collection to determine who is authorized to take action in an application, patent, or reexamination proceeding and where to send correspondence regarding an application, patent, or reexamination proceeding.

Miscellaneous Actions
Program Changes Due to Agency Discretion With this renewal the USPTO has removed three lines from the information collection that dealt solely with change of address provisions; including 130,065 responses, 6,502 burden hours and $1,274 non-hourly cost burdens. The following items are considered exempt from the PRA under 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(1) and removed from the information collection: • Change of Correspondence Address-Application; PTO/SB/122 • Change of Correspondence Adress-Patent; PTO/SB/123 • Patent Owner Change of Correspondence Address-Reexamintion Proceeding; PTO/SB/123A Changes in Responses and Burden Hours due to Agency Estimate • For this renewal, the USPTO estimates that the annual responses will decrease by 145,333 and the total burden hours will decrease by 8,340. These changes are due to the expected volumes estimated by the USPTO based on historical submission volumes. Changes in Annual (Non-hour) Costs due to Agency Estimate For this renewal, the USPTO estimates that the total annual (non-hour) costs will increase by $13,565 (from $13,950.74 to $26,241), with the increase resulting from agency adjustments due to: • The increase is due to the increased postage rates associated with this information collection. The previous postage rate was $0.49 in 2018 and is now estimated at $8.05. However, the overall percentage of items being mailed continues to decrease as the public increasingly adopts electronic submission.
