The UPC Committee has issued a consolidated version of the UPC Rules of Procedure following the approval of final changes to the 18th draft in July. These Rules are now in force as of 1 September 2022. For details of the final changes made to the Rules before their implementation, see our blog post here.

Consolidated versions of the Rules are also available in French and German, the other official languages of the UPC.
