As part of the epi training in relation to preparations for the UPC, this webinar will look at all aspects surrounding the opt-out procedure including removal of an unauthorised application to opt-out or unauthorised withdrawal of an opt-out in accordance with new Rule 5A of the Rules of Procedure as approved on 8th July 2022.

In addition to the legal background and strategic considerations, the webinar will focus on practical aspects of how to register an account with the UPC and perform an opt-out.

The webinar will be relevant both for inhouse attorneys handling cases for their employer and also for attorneys in private practice that may need to register opt-outs for a multitude of different applicants/proprietors.
