13 June 2014
The Agreement on the UPC was signed on 19 February 2013 by all of the EU’s member states, except Croatia, Poland and Spain. The Agreement will enter into force as soon as it has been ratified by 13 member states, including the United Kingdom (UK), France and Germany (who are the three mandatory participants).
It is our understanding that Belgium became the four state (after Austria, France and Sweden) to ratify the Agreement on 6 June 2014.
