Closed for Labour Day - Monday 24 October 2011
21 October 2011
We will be closed on Monday 24 October 2011. Our website will be available during this period.
Applications and documents filed on Monday 24 October 2011 will receive a filing date of 25 October 2011. If the deadline for filing an application or document falls on 24 October 2011, then the application or document will be filed on time if filed by 25 October 2011.
Please note - If information about a design or an invention for which an application is to be made is published prior to the official filing date it may invalidate the registration or patent. If a design or patent application is submitted online on an official closed day, such as on a weekend or Labour Day it would be prudent to wait until the next open day before publishing details of the design or invention.
