What if I need more time to file the Counter-Statement?
You may request for an extension of time to file the counter-statement by filing Form HC3 within 2 months after the date of receipt of the Notice of Opposition. [R 31(4)]
You need to show a good and sufficient reason for the extension and indicate the name and address of every person likely to be affected by the extension. You can file the form at our e-services portal, IPOS Digital Hub.
At the same time, a copy of this form has to be served on the Opponent and each person likely to be affected by an extension of time. [R 31(4), (4A), (6)]
