Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office

Guidelines2day and Article 84 EPC

The Hague (NL): 10.11.2016

Organised by the EPO with the support of the epi, this training event has been designed for patent attorneys and IP professionals. Featuring EPO lawyers and examiners along with senior European patent attorneys, the programme includes:

  • the impact of the amendments in the new Guidelines for Examination, with the focus on how to optimise patent prosecution before the EPO in terms of communication with the Office, expediting the procedure and amending the application
  • procedural changes which are not covered by the Guidelines but which are nevertheless relevant to professional representatives
  • how the EPO evaluates whether the claims comply with the requirements of Art. 84 EPC; the speakers will provide sound practical advice using general examples which do not require field specific technical knowledge.
