Public hearings

The list has not been updated since about  June 2017. We are working on a more sophisticated list; stay tuned.

The FPC publishes a limited set of details of forthcoming public hearings on its website. The following table is a continuously updated list of all public hearings announced by the FPC — incl. not only the forthcoming hearings, but also the hearings of the past.

As always, it is aimed to keep the information hereinbelow complete and correct; however, please do not forget to doublecheck with the details indicated directly on the website of the FPC when you plan to attend a hearing. Moreover, please note that hearings in St. Gall are still taking place at the Federal Administrative Court at Kreuzackerstrasse 12, 9000 St. Gall (Google maps), not directly at the seat of the Federal Patent Court.

Now, here is the list:
