IP Australia's COVID-19 Relief Measures to End on March 31

Canberra, February 15 - IP Australia has announced that the arrangements to provide more time for PBR customers will be continued until March 31, 2021. After the date, subject to any further developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, the arrangements will end. However, further time will continue to be available for customers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic at the Registrar’s discretion, where permitted by legislation. The Registrar will consider the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in exercising the discretion but may require an explanation of why you cannot comply with a due date. The same rule will apply to the time extensions for patents, trademarks, and designs. Learn more
