Who should file a Statement of Use?

Trademark applicants who originally filed an “intent-to-use” trademark application (i.e., before they began using their mark in commerce) are required to file a Statement of Use. This filing indicates that the applicant has begun using the applied-for trademark in commerce, and enables the USPTO to register the trademark.

When should I file my Statement of Use?

You should file your Statement of Use within the following time periods:

  • Within six months of the day the USPTO mails you a "Notice of Allowance." This is a written notice of conditional approval sent after the mark is published.
  • Within a previously granted extension period from the USPTO.

Common questions

What is an Allegation of Use?
An Allegation of Use is another term used for a Statement of Use. Both terms refer to a required filing for an applicant who applies for a trademark on an "Intent-To-Use" basis. The filing demonstrates actual use of the trademark in commerce and is required by the USPTO before it will register a trademark.
What are the requirements for filing a Statement of Use?
Along with your Statement of Use, you must provide:
  1. A filing fee for each class of goods or services; and
  2. A specimen showing use of the mark for each good or service listed in your Notice of Allowance.
Your Statement of Use includes a sworn statement signed by you (or someone authorized to sign for you), attesting to the use of your mark in commerce.
What happens if I don't file my Trademark Statement of Use form or Extension Request in time?
If you do not file a Trademark Statement of Use or Extension Request within 6 months of the issuance of your Notice of Allowance, the USPTO will consider your trademark abandoned.

If you've filed a trademark application on an intent-to-use basis and need more time to submit a Statement of Use, we can help you file a Statement of Use Extension Request.

To register a trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), you must prove that you are actively using your trademark to sell goods, or sell or advertise services. Simply put, you cannot register a trademark just to reserve the rights to it. You must actually use it in commerce such as displaying it on products, packaging,and other marketing materials. If you originally applied to register a trademark on an "Intent-To-Use" basis, you must also file a Statement of Use to demonstrate that you are using the trademark to sell goods and/or services. The Statement of Use form is required to complete the trademark registration process. You must file either a Statement of Use or a Request for Extension of Time to File a Statement of Use within six months of the issuance of your Notice of Allowance. If you need to file a statement of use, LegalZoom can help. Start by completing an online questionnaire. We conduct a Peace of Mind Review and electronically file the Statement of Use with the USPTO – all for an affordable price.
