Inventor Certification Form

The inventor certification form ensures that inventors who are permitted to retain title to inventions made with NIFA funding understand their obligations to the government to file for patent protection and carry out other responsibilities set forth by 37 CFR 401.9 and it initiates USDA consultation with the grantee/contractor.
