Dear clients and friends,
Considering the contingency measures adopted to prevent the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, both federal and local jurisdictional authorities, have suspended their activities from March 18 to April 19, 2020, as well as decreed that no procedural terms will run during said period.
It should be mentioned that, such suspension and interruption of procedural deadlines include:
Regarding the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI), the Federal Copyright Office (INDAUTOR), the Federal Commission on Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS) and the Consumer’s Protection Bureau (PROFECO) it is important to mention that the activities of said institutions are officially continuing in a normal manner and, therefore, the suspension of the procedural terms and deadlines of these institutions, has not yet been declared.
OLIVARES will keep monitoring and will keep you informed of any changes.
