What happens to misindexed documents that have been submitted through EFS-WEB at the USPTO? Misindexed documents may be corrected through the normal USPTO quality assurance processes during a ten business day period after submission. If the documents are still without the correct indexing after ten days, contact the electronic business center (EBC) to identify the problem and request that the documents be reindexed.
