NOTE: 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. 37 C.F.R. §2.64(b). 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
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. TMEP §715.04; TBMP §1204.
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.
