UK-IPO Deadline Update
11 May 2020, Catherine Crowe
Interrupted days extended until 28 May
The UK-IPO reviewed the interrupted days on 7 May and have decided to continue with the period of interruption. They will review again on 28 May.
An ‘interrupted day’ is a day in which the normal course of business at the IPO is not possible.
This means that most deadlines for
• supplementary protection certificates,
• trade marks,
and applications for these rights, which fall on an interrupted day will be extended. To help rights holders, businesses and IP professionals plan ahead, they will provide a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice before ending the interrupted days period.
