As previously reported here, the UK IPO had announced a period of interrupted days during which all deadlines were automatically extended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Following the last review on 22 June, the UK IPO have now announced that the interrupted days period will come to an end on 29 July and normal service will be resumed from 30 July when it will be considered business as usual. All current deadlines up to and including 29 July will now expire on 30 July (although where possible parties should seek to meet the actual deadline).  

If you have any questions about the changes referred to above and how you may be impacted, please get in touch with the Brabners Trade Mark and Intellectual Property Team – we would be happy to assist you in any way that we can.
