Current Events

Delayed EFS-Web Acknowledgement Receipts and Fee Transmittals
On October 22 (2pm-6pm ET), EFS-Web experienced a technical issue and was unable to properly generate an Acknowledgement Receipt and Fee Transmittal for some submissions. If you calculated and paid fees, your payment was successfully recorded in our payment system; however, the fees selected were not recorded on the EFS-Web generated Fee Transmittal. You can verify successful fee payments in Financial Manager or via your credit card provider.
USPTO is working to provide Acknowledgement Receipts and Fee Transmittals. If your submission was affected, please check Private PAIR or Patent Center after November 8 for confirmation of these documents.

RESOLVED: EFS-Web IFW Availability Delays
The previously reported issue regarding IFW Availability Delays has been resolved.
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Patent Electronic Business Center (EBC) at ebc@uspto.gov or 866-217-9197.
