CWA “Principles and guidance for licensing Standard Essential Patents in 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), including the Industrial Internet” 

On 6 October 2017, the first of two Workshops aiming to produce a Code of Conduct for licensing industry Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) for 5G/Internet of Things (IoT) applications was launched in Paris.

This Workshop, proposed by IP Europe and Nokia, reached at its recent meeting on 5 October agreement on a stable draft CWA which draft is now made available for public review and commenting until 13 December 2018. Comments can be submitted directly to the Workshop Secretary, Ms Melissa Jean , using the commenting form.

Comments received will be reviewed by the Workshop during January 2019.  The consensus outcome of the Workshop will then be published as a CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA).
