A new extension has been granted for all parties in proceedings before the Office having their residence or registered office in Ukraine.

The two month extension published on 28 August extends all time limits expiring between 2 September 2022 and 1 November 2022, inclusive, until 2 November 2022.

This extension follows earlier Decisions EX-22-5, EX-22-4 and EX-22-2 of the Executive director, which respectively extended all time limits expiring between: 2 June 2022 and 1 September 2002; 1 April 2022 and 1 June 2002; and 24 February 2022 and 31 March 2022.

On 9 March the EUIPO, in collaboration with the EU institutions, announced a number of measures in response to the military aggression carried out by the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

The EUIPO will continue to review the need for further extensions and additional measures as we move forward.
