Case Law of the Boards of Appeal

 
 
1.2.1 General

The boards of appeal have developed different approaches to the consideration of late submissions. One line of thought is that Art. 114(1) EPC takes precedence over Art. 114(2) EPC; the main criterion for deciding admissibility is the relevance of the prior art (T 156/84, OJ 1988, 372).
