USPTO: How to File DOCX documents through Patent Center or EFS-Web

Thursday, December 9, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:00am

recent blog from USPTO leadership highlighted many benefits of DOCX filing to the patent application process, including:

  • elimination of the need to convert structured text into a PDF for filing
  • instant feedback analysis to detect common errors that may otherwise delay processing an application
  • automatic metadata detection and removal to support the submission of only substantive information in the file

The eCommerce Modernization (eMod) team will provide information and conduct a demo using the Patent Center training mode, followed by a question-and-answer session. We encourage applicants to use the Patent Center training mode to practice filing in DOCX without saving/storing data to USPTO systems.

Please visit the Patents DOCX filing upcoming events page to register for an upcoming training webinar.

You will receive instructions for joining the webinar via email prior to your registered session.
