Temporary unavailability of all EPO online filing services on 24 October

Owing to technical maintenance work, all EPO online filing services will be unavailable on Saturday, 24 October between 08.00 and 16.00 hrs CET. This affects both European and international applications.

The services that will be unavailable are:

  • Online Filing
  • New online filing (CMS)
  • Web-Form Filing
  • ePCT

The ePCT service will be unavailable only for filing with the EPO as receiving Office.

It has no longer been possible to file international applications with the EPO using PCT-SAFE since 1 July 2020 (see OJ EPO 2020, A59).

If you wish to file while our online filing services are unavailable, you can do so by post, fax or hand.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
