First meeting of the Select Committee

One of the open questions regarding the unitary patent is related to its cost. Although, the regulations give a number of constraints regarding the fees, the actual fee levels aren't know yet.

The level of the renewal fees for a unitary patent and how the incoming funds will be divided over the participating states will be determined by the so-called ‘Select Committee’.

The EPO has announced that the select committee had its first meeting on Wednesday March 20, 2013 in Munich.

For not the Select Committee is discussing its rules of procedure. I noticed that the Select Committee did not show up yet in EPO's page of the Administrative Council.
