Update from the Executive Director of the EUIPO
The Executive Director of the EUIPO, Christian Archambeau, has released a new video update on the current situation at the Office, at the start of the return to work plan.
Mr. Archambeau confirmed that a group of approximately 70 volunteers had entered the office in the first phase of the return plan, conforming to all safety precautions, while the rest of the staff continues to telework.
He also confirmed that, after the end of the extension period, the last of the 21 000 delayed EU trade marks were published earlier this week, with the 4 800 international registrations affected due to be published by the end of the month.
Mr. Archambeau gave details of the virtual Management Board and Budget Committee meeting as well as new SME initiatives, including the recent call for interest in pro-bono services.
