The latest twists and turns: the entry into force on 1 December 2017 is postponed indefinitely. The main reasons for this are the United Kingdom’s decision to organize its exit from the European Union and the recent elections, as well as a complaint of unconstitutionality filed by a German lawyer against the draft ratification of a part Of texts by Germany.

Despite this, the Offices have advanced on the project of fixing maintenance fees (annuities) of the unitary patent, which are decided at the level of the “Top 4” on the basis that the current European patent is generally validated in 4.5 Countries of the present European Union.

Of course, we will continue to monitor these projects and will keep you informed on a regular basis.
