1.1.2
Persons entitled to file a divisional application 

Only the applicant on record may file a divisional application. This means that, in the case of a transfer of an application, a divisional application may only be filed by or on behalf of the new applicant if the transfer was duly registered and therefore effective vis-à-vis the EPO (Rule 22) at the filing date of the divisional application.
