Trademark owners must file renewal paperwork between the 5th and 6th years after the date of trademark registration. Section 8 declarations must be filed by the owner of the trademark registration. The declaration must also accurately reflect the trademark's current use in commerce of the goods or service of the registrant. At the 5th year anniversary date it is also possible for qualifying registrants to file an optional Declaration of Incontestability, which provides the highest level of trademark protection.
