Dutch Parliament ratifies Unified Patent Court Agreement

The Senate or ‘Eerste Kamer’ of the Parliament in The Netherlands approved the Unified Patent Agreement on 28 June 2016 without discussion. Two weeks ago, the Dutch Second Chamber, ‘Tweede Kamer’, had already ratified the UPCA.

It isn’t clear when the Netherlands will complete the formal procedure by depositing its instrument of ratification with the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU. The Netherlands is the 11th state to ratify the UPCA.
