How does this affect you?

The Hague System lays down time limits within which certain communications must be made. Should the expiry date (date by which WIPO must receive the communication) of a given time limit fall on a day when WIPO is officially closed, then the deadline is automatically extended to the next subsequent day on which WIPO is open.
