Summary:
Lastly Dr Froehlinger addressed the controversial issue of bifurcation. The Commission's aim is to introduce choice and flexibility into the system and she insisted that there would be no imposed bifurcation of validity and infringement proceedings. [...] She agreed that states should be dissuaded from having local chambers if that resulted in compromised quality. In an upbeat conclusion she claimed to be optimistic, albeit with the 'innocence of a newcomer', and confirmed that the Commission believes that France is hoping to reach an agreement on these proposals under its forthcoming presidency.
