Given the exceptional circumstances and the heavy disruption caused by the COVID-19 crisis across the EU, the President of the CPVO has taken the decision to extend deadlines that fall in the period 17 March – 3 May included, until 4 May 2020 for parties to proceedings before the CPVO and the Board of Appeal.

Check our dedicated webpage gathering all important information and CPVO’s decisions concerning COVID-19.


This webinar recorded at the EUIPO Academy in February 2019 and featuring Anne Gardener, CPVO's Board of Appeal Registrar, covers legal proceedings before the CPVO.

The webinar provides information on the different legal proceedings a party can ask the CPVO or the Board of Appeal to open when in search of redress. Among others, it explains Board of Appeal proceedings, objections, nullities and cancellations.
