Ukranian IPO Temporarily Suspends its Activities

Ukranian IPO Temporarily Suspends its Activities

Due to the currently ongoing institutional reform of the Ukrainian intellectual property system and the process of transferring the Ukrainian Intellectual Property Institute (Ukrpatent) functions to the Ukrainian National Office of Intellectual Property and Innovations (UKRNOIPI), the Ukrpatent has ceased its activities as a national IPO, as of November 8, 2022.

Electronic and email filings have been suspended for the time being. While paper filings are still accepted, it is not certain how and when they will be processed until the transition is completed. As a result, delays are expected in filing new applications and the assignment of the application numbers and filing dates.

Until online filing is back, for any urgent filing requests we suggest filing on paper. As the security situation in Kyiv and throughout Ukraine remains volatile, the clients will be informed when we will be able to submit paper documents on a case-by-case basis. Read more
