All judicial deadlines and procedures will remain in due course during January 2021 with no usual Administrative and Judicial Holidays given the unprecedent year as consequence of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The health emergency that occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the enactment by the National Government of the Law No. 6581 that suspends the 2021 Judicial and Administrative Holidays, at the request of the Supreme Court of Justice.
The promulgation of Law No. 6581 seeks to ease the delay caused by the implementation of the absolute quarantine in the months of March and April 2020, the consequence was the suspension of all procedural terms in the country. The resumption of the deadlines occurred gradually in the courts and administrative offices.
The National Intellectual Property Office has issued the Notice No. 13/2020, dated December 11, 2020, whereby is set forth that administrative procedures and procedural deadlines will not be suspended in accordance with the provisions of Law No. 6581 that suspends the 2021 Judicial and Administrative Holidays.
