Luxembourg’s parliamentary committee recommends approval of UPC’s PPI


The Chamber of Deputies’ Committee on Foreign and European Affairs, Defence, Cooperation and Immigration has recommended to the Chamber of Deputies (Luxembourg’s unicameral parliament) that it adopt the bill approving the Protocol on Privileges and Immunities (PPI) of the Unified Patent Court (UPC).   The recommendation was made on 5 February 2018 when the Committee adopted the report produced following the Committee’s appointment of its rapporteur on 29 January (reported here).  Both the UPC’s Court of Appeal and Registry will be in Luxembourg, and Luxembourg is one of the four countries that must deposit its instrument of ratification, approval or accession in order for the PPI to come into force.
