The work of the Council and the committees of the epi is of importance to all who deal with the patent system under the EPC. Their decisions affect not only the Institute and all its members, but can also influence the future development of the entire patent system in Europe.
So that everyone can be aware of the work done by the Council and the committees, the reports of their meetings are to be found here. In addition the epi position papers, consultation responses, amicus curiae briefs and further statements are published in this section. Members of the epi can therefore find out what the Council and the committees are saying and doing on their behalf.
