maintenance-335On December 4th through 6th, the USPTO will perform maintenance on the following trademark systems.

(1) The Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS), Trademark Electronic Application System International (TEASi), Electronic Trademark Assignment System (ETAS), and Electronic System for Trademark Trials and Appeals (ESTTA) will be unable to process payments on Friday, December 4, 2015, from 12:01 a.m. until 4:00 a.m. ET.

(2) TEAS will be unavailable on Saturday, December 5, 2015, from 6 a.m. until 11:59 a.m. ET. 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.

(3) The Trademark Official Gazette (TMOG), Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR), TEAS, and TEASi will be unavailable on Sunday, December 6, 2015, from 12:01 a.m. until 8 a.m. ET.
