EUIPO - COVID-19 Extension to end 18 May 2020

15/05/20

Following the characterisation of COVID-19 as a pandemic by WHO, the EUIPO  confirmed on 30 April 2020  further extension to deadlines in that all time limits expiring between 9 March 2020 and 1 May 2020, affecting any party before the Office, are extended to 18 May 2020. No further extension to this provision is to be made.

As with the EPO, we urge applicants to try to meet deadlines, where possible, to manage EUIPO workflows following lifting of the restrictions.
