Statement of use for Intent to use trademark filing

When USPTO issues notice of allowance for Section 1(b) intent to use trademark application, you need to do two things:

1. Statement of use filing; 


2. Provide an acceptable specimen to show use. 

USPTO examining trademark attorney approves trademark registration only upon evaluating the statement and specimen to his/her satisfaction. Your mark will be registered on the principal register if the mark is not descriptive. One of the usual reasons for registration on the supplemental register is the descriptiveness of the mark.
