Q19. Omitted Priority
 If a claim of priority is omitted when the application is filed, by accident, is there any way to correct such error?

A19. There is no way to correct the error. It is not allowed to add a claim of priority to an application after it has been filed.
 In this connection, if the error were found before the expiration of the priority period, it is possible to withdraw the application and re-file an application with the addition of the claim of priority, within the priority term of the basic application.
