OGC- NIH Branch Trademark Group

Providing Trademark Services for NIH and other components of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

The identities of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) may be valuable assets that you might want to consider protecting with a Federal trademark registration in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Slogans, names, logos, graphics--anything you use to identify the source of a product or a service may benefit from trademark protection.

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Logos are protected by law from unauthorized use. These logos may NOT be used for non-official purposes.  The Office of Communications and Public Liaison (“NIH OCPL”) maintains the policy for use of NIH logos and marks and those of its Institutes and Centers.
