Guidelines for Examination

 
 
3.1
The examiner's dossier 

The examiner's first step is to study the description, drawings (if any) and the claims of the application. In carrying out his task, the examiner will have access to the documents making up the European application and a complete history of the proceedings up to the start of search. However, the priority documents together with any translations may not yet be available at this stage (see B-XI, 4).
