What is UPC?

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) is an international court set up by participating EU Member States to deal with the infringement and validity of both Unitary Patents and European patents, putting an end to costly parallel litigation and enhancing legal certainty.

What do you need to perform UPC related activities?

In order to get access to the UPC CMS System (Case Management System) according to UPC guidelines, any user needs two certificates, provided by a Qualified Trust Service Provider under the eIDAS Regulation (EU Regulation 910/2014):

A Client Authentication
Certificate to log into CMS

A Qualified Electronic Signature (QES) certificate to digitally sign any document before submitting it to the UPC CMS

The Client Authentication Certificate must be stored on a physical device.

How can Intesi Group help you?

Intesi Group – as QTSP (Qualified Trust Service Provider) according to eIDAS Regulation – can provide both the Client Authentication Certificate and the Qualified Electronic Signature certificate required by the UPC CMS system.
Both certificates have 3 years validity and are provided either on smartcard or USB token device, along with the signing software and device drivers.
To enable the issuance of both certificates a remote identity proofing online session between the user and our authorized personnel is required.

N.B. Our QES certificates and the provided software allow unlimited signatures and can be used to digitally sign documents in contexts other than UPC.
