epi Communication regarding Brexit

Following the result of the referendum of June 23 in the UK to leave the EU, epi would like to point out: Since the UK will under any circumstances remain a member of the European Patent Convention, being not an EU instrument, there will be no consequences on the current system of European Patents. All existing European Patents validated in the UK will remain valid, even after the UK may have left the EU. Similarly, European Patent Applications filed in the past and in the future can be validated in the UK. All European Patent Attorneys situated in the UK will still be able to represent in all proceedings before the EPO.
