Matters relating to the Administrative Tribunal of the ILO: Update on discussions with the European Patent Organisation on possible future action to improve the Tribunal’s caseload
As requested by the Governing Body at its 326th Session (March 2016), this paper contains a
progress report on the discussions with the European Patent Office with a view to identifying a
solution to the difficulties caused by the number of complaints which are filed by officials against the
European Patent Organisation (EPO) and which threaten the ability of the Administrative Tribunal
of the ILO to serve all other organizations (see the draft decision in paragraph 8).
