Guidelines2DAY Seminar :


In June 2012 the European Patent Office issued a completely revised version of the Guidelines for Examination in the European Patent Office: three new parts have been added as compared to the 2010 Guidelines; in addition, much of the content of the EPO’s Internal Instructions have been included in the new edition (total 782 pages).

For instance, Parts C and D no longer relate to aspects of substantive law, but rather are confined to procedural aspects of examination and opposition proceedings, respectively. Substantive requirements are now dealt with in new Parts F, G and H. Part F deals with the requirements which the application must fulfil other than patentability, in particular, unity of invention, sufficiency of disclosure, clarity and the right to priority. Part G deals with the requirements of patentability, in particular, exclusions from patentability, novelty, inventive step and industrial application. Last but not least, Part H deals with the requirements relating to amendments and corrections. In all Parts of the 2012 Guidelines, the amount of case law cited has been expanded.
The European Patent Institute (epi) in cooperation with the European Patent Academy organises a sequence of national one-day seminars to provide an overview of the changes and the impact they may have on a patent practitioner’s daily work. For each national seminar there will be two representatives from the EPO who will give presentations on a variety of subjects; in addition, there will be one speaker on behalf of epi who will regularly interrupt the presentation and ask questions to stimulate discussions while highlighting the profession's view.
