    USPTO DOCX Filings Surcharge Fee Delay

    The USPTO has delayed the effective date of the surcharge fee for non-DOCX filings to January 1, 2023. The PTO Announcement and Federal Register Notice can be viewed using the USPTO link found here: https://www.uspto.gov/blog/director/entry/modernizing-patent-filing-with-docx The USPTO will continue to accept DOCX specifications for non-PCT applications first filed in the U.S., for applications filed in the U.S. under the Paris Convention and for applications filed as a by-pass continuation of a PCT application without the surcharge fee. The surcharge delay allows the USPTO time for further testing and for application filers to adjust to the DOCX format. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
