Update from EPO President on work on unitary patent


The EPO’s President has reported on the work of the Select Committee for the unitary patent, which held its third meeting  on 25/26 June 2013.  He noted that the EPO is aiming for the procedures for the post-grant phase of the unitary patent to be very similar to those of the EPO’s existing pre-grant phase, which will make it easier for current users and keep costs down.  He also reported that the EPO will shortly launch a website dedicated to the unitary patent, which will contain its documents and so enable the public to keep track of its work – we will include the website in our Useful links.  More details here.
