UPC’s PPI to come into force for Denmark


The Council of the EU has recorded here that Denmark deposited its instrument of ratification, acceptance or approval of the Protocol on Privileges and Immunities (PPI) of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) with the Council’s General Secretariat on 28 April, and the PPI will enter into force for Denmark on 28 May. Denmark is hosting a local division in Copenhagen, and the PPI will confer legal status on the Court and certain privileges and immunities on the Court and its property, judges and staff to ensure its proper functioning.

This map shows the locations of the UPC and, as shown here, the PPI is in force for most of these. It is not yet in force for Austria, which is hosting a local division in Vienna. Nor is it in force for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania which, together with Sweden, form the Nordic-Baltic regional division but the main location of that division will be in Stockholm (and the PPI is in force in Sweden).
