In the case of a non-unity finding by the EPO as SISA, the applicant cannot pay additional search fees to obtain further searches as in the procedure before the ISA (see point 261
). However, the applicant may request a review of a non-unity finding within one month of the date of the notification of the SISR, on condition that the review fee set by the EPO is paid within the same time limit. The review fee must be paid directly to the EPO. If the review panel considers the lack of unity objection (partly) justified, a revised SISR taking into account the outcome of the review procedure is established.
