Community Plant Variety Office: measures to deal with coronavirus outbreak

The EU Agency based in Angers, France,  responsible for considering applications to grant intellectual property rights to new plant varieties, and providing policy guidance to stakeholders – the Community Plant Variety Office – has issued a notice that it will be adopting ‘social distancing measures’ and changing their work processes to deal with the international pandemic caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

From today, all personnel that are able to will be teleworking, and presence will be limited to what is strictly necessary. Non-essential meetings with external visitors have been cancelled both at and away from CPVO premises, taking place instead by phone and video-conferences.

The CPVO has set up a team to monitor the situation and take decisions that are necessary for business continuity, and the health and safety of staff, stakeholders, and clients. That Business Community Team will keep in touch with all relevant public authorities at EU, national and local levels.
