Inconsistency in the priority claim 

Any indication in the priority claim must be consistent with the corresponding indication appearing in the priority document. However, if an indication in the priority claim is inconsistent with the corresponding indication in the priority document, the claim is not considered void for the purposes of the international phase of the PCT procedure. Instead, in such cases the RO draws applicants' attention to the inconsistency and invites them to correct the priority claim accordingly (PCT/RO/110; see GL/PCT‑EPO A‑VI, 1.4.1).
