General remarks 

Subsequent to the filing of a European application, a divisional application may be filed. The divisional application is accorded the same filing date as the parent application and has the benefit of any right of priority of the parent application in respect of the subject-matter contained in the divisional application. A European application may give rise to more than one divisional application. A divisional application may itself give rise to one or more divisional applications.
