on the 29th May the UK IPO reviewed the "interrupted days" scheme once again. As the Covid-19 outbreak continues to disrupt many businesses both nationally and globally, the UK IPO has announced that the period of interruption will continue and next be reviewed on 22 June 2020.

As set out in our last update, at least 2 weeks' notice will be given by the UK IPO prior to the end of the the period of interruption. Therefore, it seems that the scheme will be likely be in place until at least 6 July 2020.

Keep an eye out for further updates on UK IPO deadlines and deadlines from the EU IPO and further afield on our website.
