The Board of Appeal for Patents and Trademarks will move
The Board of Appeal for Patents and Trademarks will move to Nævnenes Hus on 23 April 2018
As part of the Danish Government's relocation of jobs, the Board of Appeal for Patents and Trademarks will be transferred to Nævnenes Hus in Viborg on 23 April 2018. From this date, The Danish Patent and Trademark Office will no longer function as secretariat for the Board of Appeal.
As from 23 April 2018, all correspondence - including appeals of decisions from the Danish Patent and Trademark Office – must be sent to Nævnenes Hus by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Nævnenes Hus, Toldboden 2, 8800 Viborg. This also means that the possibility to make payments to the Board of Appeal, through The Danish Patent and Trademark Office, will end.
Nævnenes Hus is able to receive payments to the Board of Appeal from 23 April 2018. Until the end of May, payments to Nævnenes Hus can be made to account no. 0216-4069207928 (IBAN: DK 81 0216 4069 2079 28 and BIC/SWIFT: DABADKKK). From 1 June 2018, payments must be made to a new account number, which can be obtained by contacting Nævnenes Hus after 15 May 2018.
A transitional arrangement – only for payments - has been agreed between The Danish Patent and Trademark Office and Nævnenes Hus. This means that payments to the Board of Appeal can be made to the Danish Patent and Trademarks Office until (and including) 31 May 2018. This includes payments through DKPTO Deposit Accounts.
