The European Commission has launched a new consultation on the interplay between standardisation and intellectual property rights (IPR) such as patents.

The purpose of the present consultation is to allow stakeholders interested in standardisation involving patents to bring to the Commission's attention their views on:

  • how the current framework governing standardisation involving patents performs and
  • how it should evolve to ensure that standardization remains efficient and adapted to the fast-changing economic and technological environment.

This consultation will be open until January 31st, 2015.
