Summary of Facts and Submissions

The appeal contests the decision of the Examining Division of the European Patent Office dated 4 August 2010 refusing the European patent application No. 06728503.1. The decision was dispatched by registered letter with advice of delivery to the applicant on the day it was given. The appellant filed a notice of appeal by a letter received on 27 September 2011 and paid the fee for appeal on the same day. No Statement of Grounds was filed. The notice of appeal contains nothing that could be regarded as a Statement of Grounds pursuant to Article 108 EPC.

I. By a communication dated 8 February 2011 sent by registered letter with advice of delivery, the Registry of the Board informed the appellant that no Statement of Grounds had been filed and that the appeal could be expected to be rejected as inadmissible. The appellant was invited to file observations within two months.

II. No answer has been given to the Registry’s communication.

Reasons for the Decision

As no written statement setting out the grounds of appeal has been filed, the appeal has to be rejected as inadmissible (Rule 101(1) EPC).


For these reasons it is decided that:

The appeal is rejected as inadmissible.
