Update on WIPO Dispute Resolution Operations due to COVID-19
03/04/2020
Despite the spread of COVID-19, declared as a pandemic by WHO, WIPO is continuing to deliver the important work plan almost entirely remotely. In particular, UDRP and related ccTLD cases will continue to be processed.

As the situation is evolving day by day worldwide, all parties are kindly requested by WIPO to understand that some flexibility and discretion could be required in individual case scenarios.

Parties may submit case filings to domain.disputes@wipo.int ; case-specific queries to domain.disputes@wipo.int; general questions to arbiter.mail@wipo.int.

Also the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center continues to receive and administer cases submitted under the WIPO Mediation, Arbitration, Expedited Arbitration and Expert Determination Rules.

Until further notice, any new request in this regard should be submitted electronically via email to arbiter.mail@wipo.int. Alternatively, such request may be submitted online using the WIPO IP Portal form.

Parties and neutrals benefit from considerable procedural flexibility. The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center also makes available free of charge online case administration options, including an online docket and videoconferencing facilities.

For a general update on WIPO IP services, please consult the WIPO page.
