The BPTO postponed the final term of the current suspension of administrative deadlines, and maintained its employees in home office work until May 31

Due to the continuous proliferation of COVID-19, the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO) postponed again the final term of the current suspension of administrative deadlines, and maintained its employees in home office work until May 31, 2020 (INPI Ordinance No. 179, of May 11, 2020). Notwhithstanding, the BPTO’s e-filing systems are fully operational, so we are able to proceed with any filings and/or to take any administrative measure regularly, regardless of the extension of the deadlines for each case. Additionally, we may contact the BPTO to clarify any doubt under its regular website communication channel. Our teams keep working regularly, also in home office, and we will be pleased to answer to your questions or provide you with any needed support.
