Identifying information that may not be published: Request for deadline extension

In case of a request for an extension of the deadline: – Such a request must be in writing (e-mail is sufficient). – The request must be reasoned to allow for its appropriate assessment by the case team. – In general, the need to prepare, at the same time, for a procedure before the Court (appeal, preparation for a hearing) is not an acceptable reason for an extension, since this applies to all parties. – In general, a justified extension should not exceed one week, however, account should be taken of the length of the decision, which in certain circumstances may justify a longer extension. – The reply to the extension request should be in writing (e-mail by the case team is sufficient).
