1.5
Designation of the inventor 

The provisions of A-III, 5.5 apply with regard to the designation of the inventor, except that, where the designation of the inventor has not been provided or is deficient (i.e. it does not comply with Rule 19), the applicant will be invited to provide or correct it within a period to be specified by the EPO, which must be a minimum of two months (Rule 132(2)). The divisional application requires a separate designation, independent of the parent application on which it is based.
