If a determination is made pursuant to § 1.750 that a patent is eligible for extension and that the term of the patent is to be
extended, a certificate of extension, under seal, or an order granting interim extension
under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5), will be issued to the applicant for the extension of the patent term. Such certificate or order will be recorded in the official file of the patent and
will be considered as part of the original patent. Notification of the issuance of the certificate or order of extension will be published
in the Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Notification of the issuance of the order granting an interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5), including the identity of the product currently under regulatory review, will be
published in the Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office
and in the Federal Register. No certificate of, or order granting, an extension will be issued if the term of
the patent cannot be extended, even though the patent is otherwise determined to be
eligible for extension. In such situations, the final determination made pursuant to § 1.750 will indicate that no certificate or order will issue.
