Information Meeting the Criteria of Rule 48.2(l)

333A.  The receiving Office is not obliged to check whether the international application or other documents contain any information meeting the criteria of Rule 48.2(l).  If the receiving Office notes, however, that the international application or other documents contain information which appears to meet those criteria, it may suggest to the applicant to request the International Bureau to omit this information from international publication (Form PCT/RO/130).
