When the USPTO receives notification from the IB that the international registration has been restricted in part due to a partial cancellation, the MPU will determine what, if any, goods/services remain extended to the United States, and delete the canceled goods/services from the U.S. registration. The USPTO will then issue an updated registration certificate. 15 U.S.C. §1141j(a);  37 C.F.R. §7.30.
