Update – EUIPO Further Suspends Deadlines to 18 May 2020

April 2019

In March, the EUIPO announced that, in view of the coronavirus crisis, all time limits affecting any party before them which were due to expire between 9 March 2020 and 30 April 2020 would be extended to 1 May 2020.

This week (on 29 April 2020), due to the ongoing crisis, the EUIPO has announced that all time limits affecting any party before them currently expiring between 1 May 2020 and 17 May 2020 will now expire on 18 May 2020.  In effect, this means that all time limits before the Office which were due to expire between 9 March 2020 and 17 May 2020 which have not been satisfied will now expire on 18 May 2020.
