After the expiration of the one-year period, the USPTO disposes of the paper unless the applicant, patent owner, or reexamination party timely files a bona fide request to correct the electronic record of the paper in IFW or SCORE. DOCX submissions will be treated similarly. Therefore, the procedure to correct any discrepancies or errors that occur as a result of filing an application in DOCX format will align with the established procedure for an applicant, patent owner, or reexamination party to request corrections to the electronic record when there is an error caused by the USPTO in scanning papers into the IFW. Applicants should promptly review the electronic record of an application and file any request to correct the electronic record based on the source or evidentiary copy as soon as possible after the document has been submitted to the USPTO. Applicants should not expect to have a request to correct the electronic record granted if the request is based on the source or evidentiary copy and it is filed more than one year after submission of the document. Documents submitted by applicants in PDF or DOCX in patent applications will be treated in a similar manner to papers that have been scanned into the IFW in that they may be disposed of after a period of time if they are the source or evidentiary copy. The USPTO’s procedures regarding national security classified documents are unaffected by this notice. National security classified documents must be filed in the USPTO in paper format via hand-delivery to Licensing and Review or by mail in compliance with 37 CFR 5.1(a) and Executive Order 13526 of December 29, 2009, or in electronic format via the Department of Defense Secret internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET). See section 115 of the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP, Ninth Edition, Revision 10.2019). National security classified documents filed electronically via SIPRNET are maintained at the USPTO in paper form; an electronic record of such documents is not maintained. Thus, all national security classified documents filed with the USPTO are maintained only in paper form, and the paper copies of these documents are the source or evidentiary copies.
