Unitary Patent Package – The Ratification Game (Portugal completes its ratification formalities)

EU shirt2Update (1 September 2015)

According to the website of the Council of the European Union, Portugal has now deposited its instrument of ratification (on 28 August 2015) to become the eighth country to complete its ratification formalities. Portugal joins Luxembourg, Malta, Denmark, Belgium, Sweden, France and Austria as one of the eight countries who have completed their ratification processes.
