Final Office action

An Office action that restates all outstanding issues from previous non-final office action(s) and holds these issues final. A final Office action is intended to end examination of a trademark or service mark application.

The applicant’s only response options for a final Office action are to

  1. resolve all outstanding issues, if possible, and/or
  2. file an appeal with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

If an applicant does not resolve all issues or timely file an appeal within six months from the issue date of the final Office action, the application will be abandoned.
