IP Federation supports proposed Council Regulation on patent translations

24 September 2010

The IP Federation has issued a statement in support of the principles expressed in the proposal for a Council Regulation on the translation arrangements for the European Union patent.

The members of the Federation support principles expressed in the proposal for the Council Regulation (EU) on the translation arrangements for the European Union patent, issued by the Commission in July 2010, though have some concerns about some of the details of the draft Regulation which will need to be discussed in due course. In particular, we are happy with the proposal that an EU patent will be processed, granted and published in one of the three official languages of the European Patent Office (EPO) with claims translated into the other two official languages upon grant, and no further translations being required except in case of dispute.
