Hi Gerv and Kirk,

This approach would not, however, eliminate the risk of IPR issues associated with implementing guidelines before the review period is closed without any Exclusion Notices being filed.  Each member would need to consult with their own counsel to determine how comfortable they are with assuming that risk.

Best regards,

That's a great idea; but then I would think so, because it basically has
the same effect as what I proposed ;-)
