Guidelines for Examination


12. Certificate

As soon as the European patent specification has been published, the EPO issues the proprietor with a certificate attesting that the European patent has been granted to the person named in the certificate. Where there is more than one proprietor, each of them is issued with a certificate. The proprietor may request that a certified copy of the certificate with the specification attached be supplied to him upon payment of an administrative fee. For further details see the Decision of the President of the EPO dated 16 July 2013, OJ EPO 2013, 416.
