Mexico City, June 2020.
Following the agenda established within the Federal Government’s Gradual Plan towards a New Normalization, the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (MIIP) has published an agreement by means of which it extends the suspension of terms and deadlines with respect to all processes and procedures carried out before said Institute, as of March 24, 2020 and until the expected conditions for the restarting of activities of the MIIP are materialized. Therefore, all terms that expire during said period will be automatically extended to the first business day in which the Institute resumes activities.
In this sense, the reception of documents at the MIIP will continue to be carried out online for all new applications and writs of electronic files, having as date of reception the first business day in which activities are resumed.
