A new working arrangement between the UK and European patent offices which will help UK businesses, was signed on the 4 March 2014 by the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the European Patent Office (EPO).

The ‘Cooperation plan’ was signed during a meeting between Intellectual Property Minister, Lord Younger; John Alty, Chief Executive of the IPO, and President Benoit Battistelli from the EPO.

The plan outlines a better working relationship between the two organisations and will also allow UK businesses to have increased access to patent information in Europe.
