Trademark e-registration certificate issuance accelerated to May 24

Our Trademark and IT teams are accelerating our transition to electronic registration certificates. Starting May 24, approximately two weeks earlier than previously announced, we will begin issuing electronic registration certificates.

The new date accelerates the benefits of the electronic certificates and addresses a recent paper vendor disruption. Due to the disruption, the USPTO will not issue registration certificates between May 10 and May 23. 

Registrants will still be able to order printed presentation copies of their registration certificate beginning May 24. In the coming days we will issue a Federal Register Notice about this change. 

Thank you for your patience as we move toward serving our trademark community in a more resilient and sustainable way.
