About mandatory electronic filing

Beginning December 21, 2019, trademark applicants and registrants will be required to file trademark applications and related documents using the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS). Applicants and registrants must also provide an accurate email address so that the USPTO can contact them. Implementation of end-to-end electronic processing will result in faster processing times and fewer errors.
