Trademark and TTAB Filing Deadlines
In view of the official closing of the USPTO on Monday, March 17, Trademark Electronic Application Submission (TEAS), Trademark Electronic Application Submission International (TEASi), and Electronic System for Trademark Trials and Appeals (ESTTA) remain available for use, and trademark filings therefore can be submitted electronically despite the closure. Any action or fee due on Monday, March 17, will be considered timely on the next succeeding business day on which the USPTO is open.
Because TEAS, ESTTA & TEASi forms cannot be reprogrammed to accept delayed filings, customers will need to employ workaround procedures, which may include filing petitions. USPTO strongly recommendeds that any submissions due today be filed today, if possible.
