Boards of Appeal Relocation - New lease agreement signed
After the nomination by the Administative Council of the new President of the Boards of Appeal (BoA), the implementation of the BoA reform has further progressed. A lease agreement for an office building in Haar, Munich, was signed on 19 December 2016 between the EPO and the Versicherungskammer Bayern. It follows the recent decision by the Administrative Council to relocate the Boards of Appeal (BoA) in order to strengthen their independence.
The move foresees 240 workplaces and all the facilities for a court environment spread over 11 000 m2, with the relocation expected to take place in summer 2017.
