Ancillary regulations to the EPC

Special edition 1 of the Official Journal 2010 - trilingual 

The special edition of the OJ EPO "Ancillary Regulations to the European Patent Convention" contains presidential decisions and EPO notices of particular importance for patent practitioners, together with selected Administrative Council decisions and other relevant texts - essential reading for anyone involved in the European patent grant procedure.

The 2010 edition of the ancillary regulations provides, together with the 15th (2013) edition of the EPC containing references to the decisions and notices contained in special edition 1 of the OJ 2010 (and published in the OJ since then), a handy yet comprehensive overview of current European patent law.

Updates to the ancillary regulations are regularly published in the Official Journal.
