Case Law of the Boards of Appeal

 
 
10. Suspected partiality of members of the Enlarged Board of Appeal

As is clear from its wording, Art. 24 EPC applies to both members of the boards of appeal and members of the Enlarged Board of Appeal. The latter are therefore covered both in their capacity under Art. 112 EPC and in the additional capacity later conferred on them under Art. 112a EPC. Indeed, objections to members of the Enlarged Board on the ground of suspected partiality have already been filed.
