02.08.2017

Estonia deposited its instrument of ratification of the Unified Patent Court Agreement (UPCA) with the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU yesterday.   Estonia’s legislation ratifying the UPCA came into force on 26 June 2017 but yesterday’s deposit means that the ratification is now effective (Article 84 UPCA).  As shown here, this makes a total of 13 countries that have now ratified.  As reported here, Estonia had already notified its consent to the start of the UPC provisional application phase.
