As previously mentioned by my colleague Lena Coombes, the UK IPO previously reviewed and extended its “interrupted days” to 22 June 2020.
The UK IPO has today further reviewed the “interrupted days” scheme, which will now come to an end on 29 July 2020. The first normal day of operation at the UK IPO will be 30 July 2020. This also means that all deadlines which were due during the “interrupted days” will now be due on 30 July 2020. This new deadline allows sufficient time for all applicants and parties of various proceedings to respond to any outstanding actions.
Following a review, the interrupted days period will come to an end on 29 July. This will mean that the first normal day of operation when all interrupted days deadlines expire will be Thursday 30 July.
