Argentina´s PTO resumes the course of the administrative deadlines.
On December 14, 2020, Argentina´s National Institute for Industrial Property (INPI) will resume the course of administrative deadlines for all procedures under its jurisdiction. The measure covers both ordinary and extraordinary procedures.
Through Resolution 194/20 (issued on November 20, 2020) INPI established the resumption of all the administrative terms that were suspended by Res P-16/20, since March 12, 2020, due to the state of Mandatory Preventive Social Isolation (ASPO).
Beyond the resumption of terms, all procedures before INPI will continue to be carried out online, through the Web Procedures Portal. On-site attention will be an exception, with previous appointment, and only for those cases in which the procedure could not be completed remotely.
