MyEPO services fully replaces several legacy tools as of 1 July

As of today, MyEPO services fully replaces the following tools and services:

Legacy Mailbox

  • The Mailbox as accessible via MyEPO Portfolio continues to be regularly enriched with more functionalities and now offers a multitude of features that were not available in the old Mailbox. The legacy Mailbox has therefore been switched off today. Users of the legacy Mailbox will find their communications back in the MyEPO Portfolio Mailbox. Full information on the use of the MyEPO Portfolio Mailbox can be found on our website.

MyFiles and Admin facilities services

  • MyEPO Portfolio makes files and file administration services more easily accessible than ever before. MyFiles and Admin facilities services have therefore also been discontinued.

All fax services relating to the patent granting process

  • The web-based OLF 2.0 presents a modern and convenient way of filing applications and other documents. Further, in emergency cases, the Contingency Upload Service is available via our website. Starting today, the EPO no longer accepts submissions by fax. Having stopped sending faxes in March 2023, all fax services relating to EP, PCT and Unitary Patent proceedings, including opposition and appeal proceedings – with exclusion of proceedings before the Disciplinary Board of Appeal – cease as of today.
