UPC is delayed by 2 months

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) announced earlier today that the starting date of the new Court will be delayed by two months. This means that the new Court won’t open its doors until the 1 June 2023. The sunrise period, during which it will be possible to lodge opt-outs from the UPC, will be similarly delayed and will start on the 1 March 2023 at the earliest. The reason for the delay is that many users have had great difficulty in getting access to the digital authenticity and identification certificates that are required to use the Court’s digital case management system.
