UPC Appoints 21 Additional Technically Qualified Judges

Aug 10, 2023

The UPC has appointed 21 new technically qualified judges (TQJs) across various areas, including chemistry and pharmaceutics, biotechnology, mechanical engineering, electricity and physics.  Following a selection process, the UPC Administrative Committee adopted the final list of recommended candidates on 2 June 2023.  Further appointments of TQJs are expected to take place later in 2023, with interviews to be scheduled in the upcoming weeks.

On 2 June 2023, Sanofi-Aventis filed revocation proceedings in UPC in relation to Amgen’s Repatha® (evolocumab), one of the earliest UPC revocation cases filed – only one day after the Court’s commencement.
