INPI´s measures regarding COVID-19 outbreak

In accordance with the health emergency declared in Argentina due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) has joined the adoption of extraordinary measures. Today, the INPI´s Resolution No.16/2020 was published in the Argentine Official Gazette establishing the suspension of all deadlines as from March 12th until April 3rd, 2020. This suspension can be extended if the causes that motivated such measure subsist.

Notwithstanding the above, all the filings that the applicants have made or will make within the original term will be deemed timely performed.

Additionally, please be informed that UNGRIA ARGENTINA and the INPI are fully operating and filings can be done online or in person. However, its staff is reduced and the days of attention to the public will probably be limited to a few days.

We will continue to inform you about any developments that may occur.  read more
