COVID-19 Update

November 2020

As you may be aware, on Thursday 5 November 2020, England is expected to enter another period of lockdown for at least four weeks to curb the spread of COVID-19.  Wales, where the UK Intellectual Property Office is based, has been subject to a lockdown for several weeks already.  However, unlike in the first lockdown over the Spring, at present the UK IPO has not announced a period of interruptions, and all deadlines before the UK IPO remain in place as normal until further notice.  If the situation changes, we will advise further.
