New Requirements when Submitting Evidence to EUIPO

EUIPO has published Decision No EX-22-7 introducing several changes to EUIPO's rules for filing evidence on data carriers from 1 February 2023.

EUIPO informs that only unlayered PDFs files with a maximum size of 20 MB for each individual file will be acceptable. Encrypted, executable and/or compressed files will not be accepted by the Office.

If an annex submitted on a data carrier complies with the requirements of this Decision, the Office will upload it into the electronic file (DAS). If the combined size of all files on the data carrier exceeds 1 GB, the data carrier is still accepted, but the Office is not obliged to upload the data carrier content into the electronic file as there may be technical constraints to do so.

It should be noted that the Office will deem an annex or part of an annex as not filed when the requirements as stipulated in the Decision have not been met. Further, the Office will not invite the party to overcome the deficiency.
