Case Law of the Boards of Appeal

 
 
5.1. Repeatability

In T 281/86 (OJ 1989, 202), it was held that there is no requirement under Art. 83 EPC 1973 according to which a specifically described example of a process must be exactly repeatable. Variations in the constitution of an agent used in a process are immaterial to the sufficiency of the disclosure provided the claimed process reliably leads to the desired products. See also T 292/85 (OJ 1989, 275); T 299/86 (OJ 1988, 88); T 181/87, T 212/88 (OJ 1992, 28); T 182/89 (OJ 1991, 391) and T 19/90 (OJ 1990, 476).
