The spread of the COVID-19 virus and the implementation of the measures against it presents us all with challenges. We confirm that our office remains fully operational. In order to the restrictions of the Dutch Government, most of our employees are working from home, with only a few exceptions. If you have any questions you can reach us by phone or by email.
Also, the European Patent Office is adopting preventive measures; All oral proceedings (examination and opposition) scheduled until 17 April 2020 are postponed, unless they have already been confirmed to take place by means of videoconferencing. All time limits (EPC and PCT) expiring on or after 15 March 2020 are extended until 17 April 2020. Visit the EPO website for the latest update.
Please stay safe and keep in touch.
