PTO Form 1583 (Rev 05/2006)
OMB No. 0651-0055 (Exp. 07/31/2018)
Combined Declaration of Use and Incontestability Under Sections 8 and 15
(15 U.S.C. §§ 1058 & 1065)
TEAS - Version 5.8 : 01/14/2017
On Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. ET, TEAS and TEASi will be unavailable due to system maintenance. 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. Our recommendation is that you file all recently created portable forms and e-signature forms by 7:59 a.m. ET on April 29, 2017. Customers unable to do so will be required to start the process again with updated forms.
You may file a Combined Declaration of Use & Incontestability under Sections 8 & 15 only if you have continuously used a mark registered on the Principal (
Supplemental) Register in commerce for five (5) consecutive years after the date of registration. You must file the Combined Declaration, specimen, and fee on a date that falls on or between the fifth (5th) and sixth (6th) anniversaries of the registration (or, for an extra fee of $100.00 per class, you may file within the six-month grace period following the sixth anniversary date). If you have NOT continuously used the mark in commerce for five (5) consecutive years, you must
file a Section 8 Declaration. You must subsequently file a Section 8 declaration, specimen, and fee on a date that falls on or between the ninth (9th) and tenth (10th) anniversaries of the registration, and each successive ten-year period thereafter (or, for an extra fee of $100.00 per class, you may file within the six-month grace period). FAILURE TO FILE THE SECTION 8 DECLARATION WILL RESULT IN CANCELLATION OF THE REGISTRATION.
