Deadline extensions due to COVID-19

03/04/2020

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic and its possible effect on the operations of legal entities and individuals the ISIPO has decided to extend all deadlines until May 4 2020. This applies to all deadlines that are decided by the ISIPO, such as deadlines for submitting documents or written arguments. The extension does not, however, affect deadlines which are determined by law or regulations, such as those pertaining to priority, for submitting oppositions, to resuming case processing after the rejection of an application, to renewal and to the payment of fees.

New patent search engine deployed

20/03/2020

The ISIPO‘s new patent search engine has been deployed. The new search engine has similar functions as the previous patent search engine but is built on a new and more sophisticated patent database and has a more rapid response.

As in the previous search engine, users can search by application number, priority number, owner and agent. The ISIPO will continue to update and improve the search engine in line with the needs of users. The patent search engine is only available in Icelandic, but an English version will be launched in the coming weeks.
