  1. A request for registration
  2. The applicant’s name
  3. The applicant’s address
  4. The applicant’s citizenship or state or country of organization or incorporation, and if a U.S. partnership or joint venture, the names and citizenship of general partners or active members of the joint venture
  5. One or more filing bases
  6. A list of the goods or services
  7. The international class of goods or services, if known
  8. A description of the mark, if the mark is not in standard characters
  9. An English translation of any non-English wording
  10. A transliteration (the phonetic spelling of the pronunciation, in corresponding Latin characters) of all non-Latin characters and either an English translation of the transliterated term or a statement that the transliterated term has no meaning in English
  11. A verified statement
  12. A drawing of the mark
  13. The application filing fee for each class of goods or services
  14. The multiple-class requirements, if applicable.
