COM/2007/0165 final

Engineering companies, which supply many of the critical enabling technologies, are faced with a European patent system which does not sufficiently meet their needs. Orgalime has therefore supported in the past the Commission’s and the EU Presidencies’ efforts in reaching a compromise on the community patent and a unified patent jurisdiction system. Our industry needs a community patent that is based on a competitive language regime and that brings considerable improvement to European engineering companies compared to today’s situation.

With the following position paper we further outline in detail our views on the community patent and which criteria it needs to fulfil. We also comment on the language regime of the future unified patent jurisdiction system as well as on the qualification of judges, the composition of the panels and on split jurisdiction.
