COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Colleagues,

South Africa has been under lockdown due to COVID-19 since 27 March 2020 and we have moved to an alert level system having levels 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 with level 5 being total lockdown.

We are now at alert level 1. As from 1 October 2020 and until further notice we will be operating with 75% staff complement at the office for the safety of our staff. There may be some delays but we will try to limit the impact as much as possible. CIPC (Patent Office) is open and filings continue as normal. However, since our Patent Office is not yet working with a full staff compliment delays in receiving official communications can be expected.
