About the audit program

Trademarks that aren't in use on all registered goods and services may unnecessarily block future applications. These trademarks also allow owners of unused marks to maintain rights they aren't entitled to. Because removing these registrations or deleting goods or services not in use is crucial for maintaining an accurate register, we created the Post Registration Proof of Use Audit Program.
