The UPC Preparatory Team has now published the roadmap for the implementation of the Unified Patent Court, showing all important steps until the UPC Agreement enters into force in April 2023. At the same time, the team points out that the plan may still be subject to changes, but these will be communicated promptly.
According to the current plan, the 3-month sunrise period will begin on January 1. Following this, the new UPC will start work in April 2023.
For more detailed information, please see the article Unitary Patent System Roadmap by Dr. Hanno Flentje on our UPC page. We will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have!
