5.4.2 The missing parts are completely contained in the claimed priority

In cases where no translation of the priority is required and the application and priority are in the same official language, the requirement that the late-filed parts of the application are "completely contained" in the claimed priority is met only if the parts of the claimed priority identified by the applicant according to Rule 56(3)(c) contain the same drawings, with the same annotations or for late-filed parts of the description, contain the same text.

If a translation of the claimed priority is required, then the requirement that the late-filed parts of the application are "completely contained" in the claimed priority is met only if the parts of the translation of the claimed priority identified by the applicant according to Rule 56(3)(c) contain the same drawings, with the same annotations or, for late-filed-parts of the description, contain the same text.
