A non-substantive trademark office action is raised by the USPTO if there are procedural or administrative issues related to your trademark application. Examples of non-substantive issues include a missing domicile address, incorrect legal entity, or problems with payment.

These office actions are generally considered less complex and are primarily focused on clarifying and correcting issues that do not directly affect the eligibility of your trademark for registration.
