New Decision on communication by electronic means and list of official fax numbers

On 1 March 2019, the new Decision No EX-19-1 of the Executive Director of the Office on ‘communication by electronic means’ enters into force.

According to the Decision, as from 1 March 2019, in all procedures relating to EU trade marks and Community designs where fax is an accepted means of communication, all incoming fax submissions must be sent to the official general fax number of the Office in order to be acceptable. The list of official fax numbers is available in Annex 1.

Consequently, any incoming fax that is addressed to a fax number not included in Annex 1 of Decision No EX-19-1 will be deemed not to have been received as from this date.
