UPC decision: Competence Central Division

Rule 17.3 of the Rules of Procedure of the Unified Patent Court: If the action involves a patent having more than one classification, the Registry assigns the action in accordance with Rule 345.3 Rules of Procedure to the panel at the seat or the section appropriate to the first classification of the patent according to Annex II of the agreement. By decision No. PR/08052023 dated 8 May 2023 of the presidium of the Unified Patent Court, actions pending before the central division related to patents in IPC section C shall (temporarily) be assigned to the section in Munich. The action was therefore re-allocated to the central division – Munich section (UPC June 16, 2023, CFI 75/2023).
