Taking into account the dissemination of COVID-19 in the EU and its declaration as a pandemic, the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) took a decision to extend all tome limits regarding different trademark and design procedures. According to the announcement:
The Executive Director of the EUIPO has today (16 March) signed a decision extending all time limits expiring between 9 March 2020 and 30 April 2020, that affect all parties before the Office, to 1 May 2020. In practice, this means that time limits are extended until Monday 4 May, given that Friday 1 May is a public holiday.
Similar decision was taken by the EPO too.
