EPO and EUIPO services and COVID-19

The EOP has postponed further activities in April due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Further to the communication issued by Christian Archambeau (Executive Director of the EUIPO) earlier in the month (2 March) postponing all events and meetings involving a high number of external stakeholders during the month of March and the participation of the EUIPO in events and activities outside the EUIPO premises, a further communication has now been issued (13 March) confirming that events in April will be similarly postponed.

A further communication was issued yesterday (16 March) providing the welcome news that as a result of the Spanish Government activating a “state of alarm” that all time limits in EUTM and RCD procedures affecting users expiring between 9 March 2020 and 30 April will be extended until 1 May 2020.  CIPA welcomes the clarity that this gives to our members in these unprecedented times.
