4.1 Examination of oppositions

The Opposition Divisions are responsible for the examination of oppositions against European patents.

The examination of newly submitted documents for compliance with physical requirements will essentially be the task of the competent formalities officers (see D‑II, 7, A‑I, 2, A‑III, 3.2, and C‑VIII, 1).
