EPC 2000

EPC 2000

In November 2000, a conference was held to discuss possible amendments to the European Patent Convention (EPC). This was the first major review of the EPC since it was concluded in 1973, and the outcome of the conference was the formulation in a resolution of fairly extensive amendments to the EPC. The new law, including these amendments, is known as “EPC 2000”.
