<VIEW FORMS>

All forms are the current PTO forms. Expiration dates on the forms are a requirement of the OMB approval process, and do not indicate a date beyond which the forms are invalid.

All forms are available in Adobe's PDF format for viewing and printing. To view and use the forms you must install Adobe Acrobat reader on your computer. Acrobat 5.0 (minimum) is required for all fillable forms.

To open a particular form for immediate use, click on the link in the Form Number or Fillable PDF column. The forms, whose links are provided under the Form Number column, must be printed out and filled in by typing or printing. The fillable forms, whose links are provided under the Fillable PDF column, are capable of being filled on your computer. To save a form for later use, use your browser's right mouse button to click on the form hyperlink, save the form file on your machine's hard disk, and open it locally in the Acrobat reader.

These forms are also available individually at ftp://ftp.uspto.gov/pub/forms/ or in a single zip-compressed file from the PTO ftp server at
ftp://ftp.uspto.gov/pub/forms/ptoforms.zip

How to complete Fillable PDF forms

About the required Adobe Acrobat Viewer:

All forms are available in Adobe's PDF format for viewing and printing. To use them you must install Adobe's free Acrobat reader on your computer.

NOTE: The USPTO cannot assist you with the installation and configuration of the Acrobat reader on your system and printer. When Adobe Acrobat reader is installed as a browser plug-in, it sometimes exhibits problems printing complex documents. If you experience such problems, (which may even cause your browser application to fail), use your browser's right mouse button to click on the form hyperlink, save the form file on your machine's hard disk, and open it locally in the Acrobat reader.

The free Adobe Acrobat reader plug-in does not permit you to save a partially-filled form for later use. In order to save a partially-filled Fillable PDF form for later use, you must purchase and install the full Adobe Acrobat 5 software application or an equivalent product that has form data saving and editing capability.

Acrobat 5.0 (minimum) is required for all fillable forms.>> Links for downloading plugins or viewers

MS Word Viewer is required for viewing .doc files [DOC]

Notice regarding Section 508 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998: Section 508 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 requires all United States Federal Agencies with web sites to make them accessible to individuals with disabilities. At this time, the forms below do not meet all standards for web accessibility.

Until changes can be implemented to make forms fully accessible to individuals with disabilities, the USPTO is providing access assistance via telephone.
For interim accessibility, contact General Information Services Division at 1-800-786-9199 (1-800-PTO-9199) or 571-272-1000, and select option 2. TTY service: 571-272-9950.

NOTICE: If any part of the preprinted text of a PTO form is modified, deleted or added to, the form number and the OMB information in the header and footer of the form MUST be removed from the altered form.
