Use this form only to file a Request for Reconsideration after issuance of a final Office action and before the deadline for filing an appeal. The filing of a Request for Reconsideration does not extend the time for filing an appeal or other proper response to the final action. A Notice of Appeal is a different form that you must file separately to preserve your right to appeal the final refusal, if appropriate. See http://estta.uspto.gov. If you file a Notice of Appeal concurrently with a Request for Reconsideration, your application will be referred to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) for processing of the appeal. The TTAB will: (1) acknowledge the appeal; (2) suspend further proceedings with respect to the appeal (including the applicant's time to file an appeal brief; and (3) remand the application to the examining attorney for review of the Request for Reconsideration.
Also, do NOT use this form to respond to any actions mailed after the
mark is published and/or registered, because the Intent-to-Use (ITU) and
Post-Registration units issue those actions, respectively. To access forms
for filing a Statement of Use/Amendment to Allege Use and/or Request for
Extension of Time to File a Statement of Use, click here. A form for
responding to Post Registration office actions will be developed
in the future.
