1.1. Notification of loss of rights under Rule 112(1) EPC

Pursuant to R. 112(1) EPC (former R. 69(1) EPC 1973 if the EPO notes that the loss of any rights results from the EPC, it must communicate this to the party concerned. If the party disagrees with the finding of the EPO it may apply for a decision on the matter by the EPO (R. 112(2) EPC, former R. 69(2) EPC 1973) or it may request further processing or reestablishment of rights, as the case may be (J 14/94, OJ 1995, 824).
