According to T 167/97
(OJ 1999, 488), the requirement of Art. 122(2), second sentence, EPC 1973
implies that the completed act likewise must meet the requirements of the EPC ‑ i.e. in the case at issue that the statement of grounds of appeal is admissible for the purpose of Art. 108, last sentence, EPC 1973
. Where the statement of grounds filed with the request for re-establishment is insufficient for the appeal to be declared admissible, the request for re-establishment must itself be declared inadmissible.
