Insights European Intellectual Property Office publishes reminder that eComm is now the way to communicate with EUIPO.


Further to Decision No EX‑20‑9 (of 3 November 2020), EUIPO’s “User Area”, eComm, is now (as of 1 March 2021) the accepted means of electronic communication with EUIPO in both EUTM and RCD procedures.

EUIPO says that all EUIPO users who previously selected Fax or Post as their communication mode with the Office, will receive e-communications, which are faster than postal mail and safer than fax, in all matters related to EUTMs and RCDs.

New EUIPO e-communications can be found in the “Communications” section of the User Area under the “New” tab. To read EUIPO’s reminder in full, click here.
