Update from the Executive Director of EUIPO
The Executive Director of the EUIPO, Christian Archambeau, has released a video update for stakeholders and users on the situation at the Office as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
The EUIPO moved to full teleworking five weeks ago, as a result of the state of emergency declared by the Spanish government.
Mr. Archambeau confirmed that, despite the current restrictions, production at the Office continues at almost normal levels, with work proceeding across EUIPO’s remit as usual. He highlighted that cooperation activities with the national and regional IP offices of the EU and stakeholders continue in virtual format.
The Executive Director added that the EUIPO is planning for an eventual return to its premises when conditions allow, while keeping the health and safety of staff to the forefront.
