Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use FAQs

What is the deadline for filing my Declaration of Continued Use?

For a trademark registration to remain valid, you must file a Trademark Declaration of Continued Use with the USPTO between the fifth and sixth year anniversaries following registration.

However, the USPTO allows a six-month grace period following the sixth anniversary date. During this period, you may submit the Declaration of Continued Use form with additional filing fees. If a trademark owner does not file this form within the grace period, the USPTO will consider the mark abandoned.
