In the course of examining a trademark application, the Examining Attorney may identify issues that preclude registration of your mark. They may be substantive (i.e., there is a fundamental flaw with the trademark you wish to register) or procedural (i.e., there was a problem with your application). Any issues the Examining Attorney identifies will be described in an "Office Action," to which you must respond within six (6) months of receipt.
When Status Code 682 is triggered, it means that the USPTO has placed your application on hold to conduct additional analysis on the registrability of your mark. No further action is needed on your part at this time.
