COVID-19: The Danish Patent and Trademark Office is operating as normal

The Danish government has urged everybody to act responsibly and has ordered that all public employees who do not hold a job critical to Danish society to work from home. The Danish Patent and Trademark Office is following these requirements and the employees of the office will therefore work from home until Monday the 13th of April 2020.

The Office is operating as normal in this period. Delays may however be experienced in relation to receipts of applications and payments.

Submission of applications and existing IP-rights

You can still submit applications in all IP-areas covered by the Danish Patent and Trademark Office. This applies to both electronic and paper applications.

You will not be able to submit applications in person. Instead, you can send applications by post or use our physical postbox in Taastrup. Please note that you must use our official postal address when sending physical post: The Danish Patent and Trademark Office, Helgeshøj Allé 81, 2630 Taastrup, Denmark.

Due dates in relation to existing IP-rights will not be affected.

Physical meetings

We will not hold any physical meetings from the 13th of March up to and including the 13th of April 2020. If possible, planned meetings will be replaced by meetings via Skype. Dialogue Searches will not be held in the period.

If you have questions

You can still contact Customer Service if you have questions. However, we encourage you to contact us via e-mail: pvs@dkpto.dk

You can stay informed of the situation on our Danish website www.dkpto.dk and on our English website www.dkpto.org.
