The BRPTO updates Guidelines for submitting Appeals and Post-Grant Oppositions, relating to patent appeal

On March 19, 2024, the BRPTO updated the rules to admit appeals where the amendment brief referred to in the BRPTO´s presidency order, as published in BRPTO's Official Gazette #2764, of December 26, 2023, was not submitted.
