The Unified Patent Court

Location Map

* UPCA stands for "Agreement on a Unified Patent Court"


The option to file an Application to opt-out is now available via the Court’s Case Management System.

If you file an Application to opt-out, the UPC will have no jurisdiction over the opted-out European patent application, European patent or supplementary protection certificate pertaining to a European patent.
