602.03 Defective Oath or Declaration

Correction of applicant-discovered errors

MPEP 602.03 assumes that the examiner has discovered the error. This section should also address what an applicant should do to address a declaration error that they have discovered, and how the examiner should process such an attempt at correction. Declaration errors are very rarely caught by examiners, but they're often discovered by applicants, for example, during pre-issue fee payment diligence.
