Revocation in the event of requirements not being met until after expiry of time limits 

In the cases referred to in D-VIII, 1.2.2 and 1.2.3, the European patent will be revoked even if the omitted acts have been completed during the period between expiry of the time limit and the taking of a final decision, unless a request for re-establishment of rights has been filed, in which case a decision must first be given on the application.
