UPC: Sunrise Period started

As of yesterday (01 March 2023), the sunrise period according to Art. 83 (3) UPC Agreement has officially started. This marks the beginning of the 3-month preparation period before the UPC Agreement enters into force on 1 June 2023 and the associated establishment of the Unified Patent Court for member states of the European Union.

Thus, from now on, both opt-out requests and registrations as representatives before the Unified Patent Court are officially possible.

At the same time as the start of the sunrise period, we at Bals & Vogel have now also taken all necessary steps to register both Mr. Bals and Mr. Vogel as representatives of our firm before the Unified Patent Court. This will enable us to ensure at an early stage that our clients' opt-out requests can be filed without delay.
