Milestone in UPC CMS development

11 July 2017

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) IT team has announced here that from August 2017 until the opening of the Court, users will have access to a stable version of the UPC Case Management System.  At that time, the development cycle will move from the continuous interactive approach, including user acceptance testing, to a more traditional development approach.  The majority of work to date has had an emphasis on opt-out functionalities, in preparation for the start of the sunrise period (forecast for early 2018).  Further work on the CMS will include the integration of the security and authentication mechanisms.
