INFORMATION FROM THE EPO
List of holidays observed by EPO filing offices and the national patent authorities in 1992
Under Rule 85, paragraphs 1 and 3, EPC, time limits which expire on a day on which one of the filing offices of the EPO and/or the central industrial property office or other competent authorities of a Contracting State are not open for receipt of documents shall extend until the first day thereafter on which those authorities are open for receipt of documents (see also the notice from the President of the EPO dated 17 October 1991, OJ EPO 1991, 604).
The following table indicates the days on which the EPO and the central industrial property offices or the other competent authorities are not open for receipt of documents relating to European patent applications.
It is expected that the competent national authorities will fix, during 1992, further days on which the patent authorities of the Contracting States are closed. Attention should therefore be paid to corresponding notices in the relevant national publications.
