Commercialization Plan Submission Deadline March 14, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET.

The submission deadline for the commercialization plan is March 14, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET.
We want to request if this can be moved to 5p.m. local time for every participating Time Zone or to make it easier 11:59 pm ET. 
We think the current submission time is unfair to the participants west of the ET zone, particularly if we are in California PT who will have a shorter time for submission.

Hi Detelina, 

Thank you for your message. Unforunately we are not able to extend this deadline for competitors. Please submit your commercialization plan no later than 5 pm. ET on March 14, 2022. More detail regarding the commercialization plan and the submission deadline may be found in the official rules document:

Thank you for your reply, I understand that it is difficult to change the rules at this point.  This is not a request for extension but rather a suggestion for the future to set up a deadline that will give all participants (from all timezones) the same amount of time for submission.
