Washington - The Department of Commerce's United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is changing some of its mailing addresses so all correspondence will be routed through a United States Postal Service facility in northern Virginia, in preparation for its move to new office space in Alexandria, Va., beginning at the end of this year.
Effective May 1, 2003, the general address for the Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as well as for the Commissioner for Patents will be:
PO Box 1450
Alexandria, VA 22313-1450
The USPTO has separate mailing addresses for other subject-specific correspondence. To determine the appropriate addresses for such correspondence, customers should check the USPTO website http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/pac/dapp/opla/preognotice/addresschange.htm.
