Case Law of the Boards of Appeal

 
 
2.1.3 "Time limitation" condition for requests for correction

In J 7/90 (OJ 1993, 133) the board found that the "time limitation" condition imposed under board of appeal case law, which required that, in general, a request for correction of the designation of a state or priority data had to be refused in the public interest if it was not made early enough to enable publication of a warning together with the European patent application, was not a "time limit" within the meaning of Art. 122(1) EPC 1973.
