Covid-19 Patent Offices

Announcements from Patent Offices (COVID-19)

All offices seem to continue to operate. Some offices warn about possible service delays, have extended time limits, and encourage the use of their electronic filing systems.
A comprehensive list of links to corona virus related pages of more than 40 national and regional offices is provided by the Italian Patent and Trademark Office UIBM.

WIPO introduced a COVID-19 IP Policy Tracker which covers initially (May 5, 2020) 18 patent offices with information on measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the extension of deadlines, operational, legislative and regulatory changes.
