Guide for applicants, Part 2: PCT procedure before the EPO (Euro-PCT Guide)

 
 
Signature
348
The demand must be signed by the applicant or, if there is more than one applicant, by all applicants. If the signature of one or more applicants is missing, the EPO as IPEA will not invite the applicant(s) to furnish the missing signature(s) provided that at least one of the applicants has signed the demand (see point 361).
349
A (common) agent or common representative may sign the demand on behalf of the applicant(s) who appointed him (see points 104 ff).
350
Where the demand is signed by a (common) agent the EPO as IPEA will not invite the applicant(s) to file a (separate) power of attorney - if not already on file - or a copy of a general power of attorney since the EPO has waived these requirements (see points 109 ff).
