What happens if I forget to index a document?


If you forget to index a document, a message will be displayed on the screen indicating that a document description must be chosen for each attached file. You will not be able to continue with your submission until document descriptions are selected for each attached file. However, if you incorrectly index a document, the error will be corrected by USPTO personnel. You may also contact the EBC to notify them of the indexing error to expedite the document being correctly indexed.
