Compulsory licenses of pharmaceutical patents for export
The Community has adopted and published a regulation – Regulation 816/2006 – on compulsory licensing of patents relating to the manufacture of pharmaceutical products for export to countries with health problems.

This regulation sets up, within the EC, the system that had been foreseen in paragraph 6 of the Decision of the General Council of the WTO of August 30th, 2003 implementing the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and public health. It enters into force at the end of June 2006.
