How can I upload the Proof of Use documentation (signed declaration + sample)?


You will be able to upload the signed declaration and the sample of Proof of Use through the TMCH web interface.

During trademark record submission:

  • On the ""Mark overview"" page, click on ""SUBMIT MARK"";
  • After filling in all information fields related to your trademark, navigate to the ""Label"" section;
  • Click on ""Choose File"" next to ""DECLARATION OF PROOF OF USE INCLUDING SINGLE SAMPLE"" and upload your POU documentation;
  • After accepting the terms and conditions, click on ""SUBMIT"" at the bottom of the page.
  • After trademark record submission, when the POU status has been set to ""incorrect"":

  • On the ""Mark overview"" page, navigate to your trademark record;
  • Click on ""View more details"" next to the mark handle to expand all trademark record information;
  • Click on ""Add proof of use"" next to the indication of the ""INCORRECT"" POU status;
  • Upload the necessary documents and click on ""UPDATE"";
  • The status of your POU should now have changed to ""CORRECTED"" which means it is in our separate POU queue to be processed.
  • You can also find a detailed overview of these steps in our manual
