Guide for applicants, Part 1: How to get a European patent

Requirements of the contracting states 
The legal position in the contracting states is given in "National law relating to the EPC", Table IV (see point 4).
Note: all those states which require a translation of the European patent specification have prescribed that, in the event of failure to observe the relevant national provisions, the European patent will be deemed to be void ab initio.
