The USPTO is pleased to announce the production Version 2.1 of the Trademarks Next Generation Acceptable Identification of Goods and Services Manual (ID Manual-NG). The ID Manual-NG features basic and advanced searching options, results returned in a sortable table that may be printed from within the application, relevance ranking of entries that correlate to the search criteria, and highlighted search terms in all returned results. The ID Manual-NG is best viewed in Microsoft® Internet Explorer® Version 10 and higher, but is also accessible in Google® Chrome® browser version 42. Display resolution settings above 900px are recommended for optimal viewing of the search window and results table.
Available in tandem with the long-established “legacy” ID Manual, both systems will continue to be maintained and contain synchronized data. The USPTO encourages users to compare and contrast the two systems and provide feedback and suggestions.
Your input will shape the next phase of evolution in Trademarks Next Generation. Please send your comments feedback to TMFeedback@uspto.gov with the subject “ID Manual-NG Feedback.”
