2.3. Divisional application to be filed with EPO

Divisional applications must be filed with the EPO in Munich, The Hague or Berlin (R. 36(2), third sentence, EPC). If a divisional application is sent to a national authority, the latter does not have to transmit it to the EPO. However, if it does, this application will have as date of receipt the date on which it reaches the EPO (T 196/10).
