What is a Notice of Allowance?

24 October, 2018

If you filed your trademark application on an ‘Intent-to-use’ basis (i.e. not already using the mark in business), the USPTO will send you a Notice of Allowance to let you know that your application has met all of the requirements for registration (e.g., no one has opposed it, etc.). Once you send an acceptable Statement of Use with supporting Specimen(s) of Use, the mark will be “allowed” for registration.
