Make use of our online services

Just now the majority of our staff work from home.

The processing of paper forms or correspondence is limited, therefore it would be greatly appreciated if you made use of our electronic services.

Extended time limit to respond to technical opinions

Because of Covid-19 it is possible to have an extra extension of the time limit for responding to the technical opinion in a patent application.

Upon request you can extend the time limit from two to four months.

Make use of our online services to extend the time limit.

International patent applications

Because of the corona pandemic, if anything is incorrect or missing in your application WIPO accepts if you do not respond in time. Authorities within the PCT system are urged not to demand late fees and PRV follows that call.


If an hearing is required in your case it will be done digitally. If so, we will contact you with instructions.
