The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has decided to review elements of the preliminary ruling made by an administrative law judge on February 29, 2016, regarding Umicore’s alleged infringement of patents licensed by the German chemical company BASF.  Umicore is pleased that the ITC will review key aspects including infringement findings and furthermore that Umicore’s request for a Commission hearing has been granted.   Umicore looks forward to presenting its arguments before the full Commission and firmly believes that, when all aspects of the case are fully and thoroughly considered, Umicore will prevail.
