OJ EPO 2009, 479 - Notice from the President of the European Patent Office dated 6 August 2009 concerning extension of time limits

In the period between Friday, 31 July 2009, 17:18:22 hrs until Sunday, 2 August 2009, 10:19:35 hrs, two EPO fax servers were out of order. Therefore it was not possible to file any patent applications or subsequent documents via fax. Under Rule 134(1), second sentence, EPC a time limit expiring on 31 July 2009 is thus extended until 3 August 2009 24 hrs.

It is recommended therefore to resend all faxes sent to the EPO in the period in which the fax server was out of order, unless the sender has already done so on account of the failure having been reported in the fax transmission report.
