If the IP office accepts your office action response, it means that the issues or concerns have been resolved to the satisfaction of the trademark examiner, and your application is cleared to advance in the trademark registration process.

In some jurisdictions, your application will be published for opposition, which means other trademark owners will have a limited time to oppose your mark if they believe there's a likelihood of confusion between your mark and theirs.

At the end of the window, if there are no unresolved oppositions, your application can advance once more, and your trademark will be successfully registered.
