Notice of 24 February 2021

Longer processing times in trade mark procedures

At present, trade mark procedures are taking longer to process. This is due to a sharp rise in the number of applications and a significant increase in cancellation requests, combined with very tight staffing levels and pandemic-related restrictions. Please do not contact us with enquiries about the processing status in the current situation. This will help us to concentrate the available staff resources and focus on processing your requests.
