25 October, 2018

« Back to Glossary Index

A written notification from the USPTO saying that a mark has been allowed for registration, but is not yet registered. 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 is “allowed” for registration.
