ID Manual Problem

The Search feature of the ID Manual is temporarily unavailable.

However, you may still browse the content of the ID Manual. Search functionality is also available through the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) system. http://teas.uspto.gov/idmanual/search.service

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The problem is being addressed by staff at the USPTO. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


TESS Search Problem

The Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) is now operational with current data and images. Unfortunately, the Image List display supporting the multiple image viewing feature is not functioning correctly. Please do not use this image viewing feature at this time.

All Trademark searches conducted after 3 a.m. on Tuesday, April 23 must be redone. Additionally, all Trademark searches using TESS conducted between 5 a.m. Saturday, April 20 and 5 a.m. Sunday, April 21 must be redone.

TEASi - Subsequent Designation to International Registration Form - Payment Error Message

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our payment system for customers using the Subsequent Designation form. Users of this form may receive an “Internal Failure” error message after submitting payment information. Although the financial portion of the transaction completed, a technical glitch prevented the subsequent designation form from updating with the payment information. The problem is being addressed by staff at the USPTO. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you received this error message, please e-mail Madrid Processing Unit at mpu@uspto.gov immediately and include the following information:

  • your name
  • telephone number
