“Representation and Privilege” sub-committee
The Representation and Privilege sub-committee monitors developments concerning representation, in particular by European Patent Attorneys, in proceedings before the UPC. The sub-committee monitors particularly how European Patent Attorneys can acquire the additional qualification in order to fully represent clients before the UPC. The sub-committee monitors and discusses also the situation regarding the implementation and recognition of a Client-Patent-Attorney-Privilege for European Patent Attorneys at national, regional and international levels.
Current Topics under discussion in the Representation and Privilege sub-committee:
- Representation before UPC/Litigation Certificate.
- Selection and training on Judges in UPC.
- Code of Conduct (in close collaboration with epi PCC).
- Client-Patent-Attorney-Privilege for European Patent Attorneys in a possible international instrument.
