star this property answer text <p>As set out in the technical notice, the Government’s primary goal is to ensure that the UK patent system continues to function effectively in the event of a no deal exit. This requires a small amount of legislative change. In February 2019, Parliament approved the <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2019/801/made" target="_blank">Patents (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019</a>, which corrected deficiencies in retained EU law relating to patents. The Government has since published <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/changes-to-spc-and-patent-law-if-uk-leaves-the-eu-without-a-deal/" target="_blank">guidance for business</a> on these changes. It continues to engage with stakeholders on the impacts of exit and preparation for a no deal scenario.</p><p> </p><p>A further statutory instrument is required to address inoperabilities in a new piece of patents-related EU legislation which entered into force earlier this month. A <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/supplementary-protection-certificate-waiver-no-deal-legislation" target="_blank">public call for views</a> on the drafting of this instrument opened on 5 July 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Unified Patent Court will be an international court with jurisdiction over patent disputes across multiple states. The Court will draw on multiple sources of law when making its rulings and is bound to follow relevant EU Law. Consequently it will be able to send queries (through preliminary references) to the Court of Justice of the EU on the correct interpretation of EU law. The Court of Justice of the EU is not an appellate court of the UPC, which has its own Court of Appeal.</p><p> </p><p>Although the Court is not an EU institution, it is established under an international agreement that is presently only open to EU Member States. Our future relationship with the Court will therefore be subject to negotiation with our European Partners, in order to reflect the UK’s changing status, as we leave the EU. It would be wrong to set out unilateral positions in advance of those negotiations, which have not yet begun.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
