The USPTO will also perform maintenance on TEAS beginning at 6 a.m. and ending at 11:59 a.m., Saturday, December 5 ET. TEAS will be unavailable during the maintenance period. Because portable and e-signature forms allow 14 days for signature, it is important that you be aware of this scheduled outage so that you can plan ahead to avoid additional work. Users should file all recently created portable forms and e-signature forms by 5:59 a.m., Saturday, December 5 ET. Customers unable to do so will be required to start the process again with updated forms. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
