Consultation on whether there is a continuing need for a UK Patent
Classification Key

In the mid 1990s the UK Patent Office held a consultation exercise on the
Future of the UKC key. The decision at the time was to retain the UKC key and,
in view of a changing environment, to review the position later. This consultation
is intended to inform all interested parties of the background to the use of
the UKC key and of the changing environment in which it is used, so as to obtain
views on the continuing need for the UKC key. The consultation will provide
valuable feedback contributing to the decision-making process in relation to
the future of the UKC key.

This document invites views about the changes proposed for inclusion in the

    by which the integrated tourism network was established in April 2005) to
    create VisitScotland as a single legal entity
  • Increasing the limit on the size of the VisitScotland Board from 7 members
    to a maximum of 12 members
