TMEP Secs. 1904.02(c)(iv) and 716.02(g) allow for suspension of an IR extension Sec 66(a) application pending correction of classification by the IB. Occasionally, other corrections are needed to an IR, such as correction of a translation error. Is the pendency of requests for such corrections also an acceptable basis to request suspension of the U.S. extension application? If so, could the text of 716.02(g) be expanded to reflect that a broader range of circumstances relating to corrections of the underlying IR can be the basis for suspension? Thank you.
