Streamlining Trademark Statement of Use: A Comprehensive Guide


After successfully obtaining a trademark registration, the next crucial step for brand owners is filing a Trademark Statement of Use. This process confirms your exclusive rights to the registered mark, ensuring its active usage in commerce. In this guide, we will walk you through the significance of a Trademark Statement of Use, the required steps, and the benefits it offers to your business.

Understanding Trademark Statement of Use

A Trademark Statement of Use is a formal declaration submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It serves as evidence that your trademark is currently being used in commerce in connection with the goods or services specified in the initial application. This filing is usually required after the initial Notice of Allowance is issued by the USPTO.

The Key Steps for Filing a Trademark Statement of Use

  • Maintain Records of Use: Before receiving the Notice of Allowance, it is essential to maintain detailed records of your trademark's use in commerce. These records should include dates of first use, specimens showing the mark in use, and any evidence of the mark being associated with the specified goods or services.
  • Receipt of the Notice of Allowance: After your trademark application is examined and approved, you will receive a Notice of Allowance from the USPTO. This notice indicates that your mark has met the initial registration requirements but necessitates the filing of a Statement of Use to proceed with the registration process.
  • Prepare and Submit the Statement of Use: Within the specified  timeframe mentioned in the Notice of Allowance (usually six months), you must file the Statement of Use with the USPTO. Include the necessary documentation, such as specimens and a verified statement affirming the mark's current usage.
  • Pay the Required Fees: Along with the Statement of Use, you will need to submit the appropriate filing fees to the USPTO. Timely payment is crucial to avoid delays or potential abandonment of the trademark application.

Benefits of Timely Statement of Use

Filing the Trademark Statement of Use within the specified timeframe is crucial to keep your trademark registration on track. Timely compliance ensures that your mark stays in active status, safeguarding your exclusive rights and preventing potential challenges from competitors.

A Smooth Transition to Trademark Registration

Once the Trademark Statement of Use is accepted by the USPTO, your trademark will move towards full registration status. This protection enhances your brand's recognition and establishes its authority in the marketplace, reinforcing your position among consumers.

Filing a Trademark Statement of Use is a crucial step in securing your brand's identity and maintaining exclusive rights to your registered mark. By following the key steps and adhering to the USPTO's requirements, you can ensure a smooth transition to trademark registration and reinforce your brand's position in the competitive market. File your Trademark Statement of Use promptly for long-lasting brand protection and continued success in the business landscape.
