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 will be to issue summons to oral proceedings; for the time limit, E-III, 6(iii) applies.
