The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has launched the COVID-19 IP Policy Tracker, a tool that provides information on pandemic-related IP office policy changes. The Policy Tracker is organized by country and IP office, and provides helpful guidance, including changes to time limits, extensions, remote capabilities and whether the specific office is processing new applications.

The information provided in the tracker comes from IP offices, WIPO member states and other entities. The tracker is freely accessible and will be updated regularly.
