Ongoing consultations

As a further step towards the Unitary Patent and to give the patent community the opportunity to become familiar with and give feedback on the new Online procedure for registering unitary effect, the EPO is pleased to inform users of its Online Filing software of an update which allows installing the Unitary Patent DEMO plug-in for Version 5.09 (build 5.0.9.148 and higher).

This update enables users to draft, sign and send a request for unitary effect, as well as to file subsequent documents, in a DEMO mode.  The final and operational version of the on-line filing software (production enabled version) will be made available before the unitary patent system enters into force.

Users are warmly invited to give their feedback to the following e-mail address: uppolffeedback@epo.org until 31st July 2016.
