EPO offices closed from 23.12.2017 to 1.1.2018

Please note that all our offices will be closed over the holiday period from 23 December 2017 and will open again on 2 January 2018. During this time no user support will be available, but you may continue to use our contact form to send us an enquiry.

A backlog of enquiries is likely to accumulate while we are closed, and we will do our utmost to respond to them as soon as possible. However, please be aware that our customary response times may be adversely affected for a short while. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

For information on time limits expiring on a day on which at least one EPO filing office is closed for receipt of documents, please see OJ EPO 2017, A7.
