Bringing the description into line with amended claims 

The description must be brought into line with amended claims by amending it as needed to meet the requirements set out in F‑II, 4.2, F‑IV, 4.3(iii) and F‑IV, 4.4.

If the applicant does not amend the description as required despite being asked to do so, the examining division's next action may will be to issue a summons to oral proceedings; for the time limit, E‑III, 6(iii) applies.
