Revised timetable for the UPC
On 27 June, 2017 the Chairman of the preparatory committee, Mr. Alexander Ramsay issued a message through the UPC website. It can be red in full here.
The recent development in some of the countries necessary for the UPC to be able to start, in particular with regards to Germany, has now lead to the issuance of a somewhat revised timetable.
Mr. Ramsay states that “I’m hopeful that the period of provisional application can start during the autumn 2017 which would mean that the sunrise period for the opt out procedure would start early 2018 followed by the entry into force of the UPCA and the UPC becoming operational.”
