The Unified Patent Court has announced an optimized API opt-out process will be in place as of 1 March 2023, at the beginning of the sunrise period.
A new set of guidelines and specifications are available on the UPC’s website for developers dedicated to the sunrise period.
The revised process for opt-out via API will be active starting from the second sunrise practice, starting 13 February. The duration of the practice period (which was supposed to end on 24 February) will be extended and last to the end of March. ‘In parallel with the start of the Sunrise Period, all external users can continue to test the new API process for opt-out on a dedicated test environment.’
According to the UPC, the ‘API process for opt-out has been revised to provide the fastest response time possible to the external users. Eventually, this new process will enhance the external users experience for a better usage of the CMS APIs. These changes are implemented based on the external user’s feedback from the 1st Sunrise Practice Period.’
