SACEPO Working Party on Guidelines (WP/G)

The members of WP/G include representatives of European industry and patent profession as well as experts nominated by leading user associations mainly located in the European contracting states. In addition, the President of the EPO has appointed recognised experts in the field of industrial property law as ad personam members.

As of 2021, the membership of the SACEPO Working Party on Guidelines has been extended to include user representatives from the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI), the Union of European Practitioners in Intellectual Property (UNION-IP) and the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI). The aim is to enrich the user feedback and to continuously extend the EPO’s worldwide reach.
