Germany ratifies Agreement on a UPC
Last Friday, Germany has ratified the Agreement on a Unified Patent Court.
This final step marks the successful completion of the necessary ratification procedures by the participating EU member states for the Unitary Patent Package to become effective for currently 17 states.
The new system is now ready to enter into operation on 1 June 2023. More countries are expected to join in the future.
The UPCA’s entry into force will mark a new era for European innovation with the launch of the Unified Patent Court and the Unitary Patent.
We are happy to assist you further in this new system.
