Attendance of the third SQAP audit on the quality of EUIPO Design Invalidity Decisions on 20, 29 and 30 September 2021

Again another interesting experience for Diehl & Partner's Attorney-at-Law and Certified IP Lawyer, Mr. Nils Bürglen, as being appointed by EUIPO as an auditor representing ECTA for reviewing the quality of decisions made by the EUIPO relating to design invalidity. SQAP (Stakeholder Quality Assurance Panels) was launched by the EUIPO in 2017 aiming to integrate the user's perspective into the quality management system and to narrow the gap between the users’ perception of quality and the quality measured by the Office.
