O. Notifications

 

  

Notifications are governed in detail by Art. 119 and R. 125 to 130 EPC. Notification may be made by post, delivery on the EPO premises, public notice and, as provided for in R. 127 EPC, technical means of communication. More specific provision for those last means was made in the decision of the EPO President of 4 July 2012 (OJ 8-9/2012, 486) on a pilot project whereby the EPO progressively introduced new technical means for the electronic communication of patent applications, other documents, notifications and further information.
