UPC – UPC informs about the eligibility of lodging opt-out applications in hard copy form

26 May 2023

Communication from the UPC on the lodging of opt-out applications in hard copy form

“A party may lodge a document in hard copy for the reason that the electronic case management system (CMS) has ceased to function (Rule 4.2 UPC Rules of Procedure) only after the Court has established such a situation. This is currently not at hand. If the Court, however, will establish such a situation due to an overstressing of the system or any other reason during the remaining last days of the sunrise period, users who wish to lodge an application for an opt-out by hard copy are advised to follow a specific process described in this communication.”
