Preliminary date set for the start of the UPC

Following the latest updates from the Preparatory team of the Unified Patent Court the entry into force of the UPC Agreement is now foreseen to 1 April 2023.

This announcement is followed by an implementation roadmap, where the start of the three month sunrise period will be the 1 January 2023.

We will follow the development closely as these dates and roadmap still only reflect the current state of the project, and the final dates will be dependent on the ratification process in Germany.
