The Unified Patent Court (UPC) is currently in the Provisional Application Phase. It is expected that the Court starts its operations early 2023, triggered by the entry into force of the UPC Agreement on the first day of the fourth month after the deposit of the German instrument of ratification as soon as the Administrative Committee is confident that the Court is operational. As the UPC further notes, the German deposit will also mark the start of the sunrise period during which it will be possible to opt out existing European patents from the jurisdiction of the Court.
