BRPTO system crashes! Deadlines are postponed until the system is restored
(BRPTO website communication from September 16, 2020)

As it did in August 2018, the BRPTO has experienced another system crash. All e-filing and searching tools have been unavailable since last Wednesday, September 16.

The BRPTO has issued a notice on its website informing users about the problem with the system and announcing that all deadlines will be postponed until regular operation is restored.

The BRPTO maintains a systems availability page that purportedly provides up-to-date information on the availability of BRPTO’s systems. However, this page is also currently unavailable.
