2. Activity of the Opposition Division

The formalities officer submits the files to the competent directorate on expiry of the periods specified in D‑IV, 5.2 and 5.5 and in the remaining cases (see D‑IV, 1.4.2) immediately.

The director responsible will then designate the three technical members of the competent Opposition Division. The Opposition Division will decide whether one of its members – and if so, which – is to be entrusted with the examination of the opposition up to the taking of a decision (see D‑II, 5). The technical members of the Division should not be designated if the opposition is rejected as inadmissible by the formalities officer and no further admissible opposition has been filed (see D‑IV, 1.4.2).
