The USPTO has issued the Trademark Manual of Examining Procedure (October 2012), with an effective date of October 31, 2012. Please note that the current version of the TMEP is now identified by the month and year in which it is issued. This is a change from prior versions, which were identified using edition and revision numbers. Note also that the new online interface, which was made available for preview in September, is now the exclusive interface and search tool for the TMEP. A Highlights document that includes some of the changes set forth in the October 2012 TMEP is also available on the USPTO website.
