10. Different sets of claims

Art. 105b(3) specifies that the decision to limit or revoke will apply to the patent in all Contracting States for which it has been granted. There is thus a single decision, covering all Contracting States, but this decision may include different sets of claims for different Contracting States, or determine that the limitation is in other ways different for different Contracting States. Such situations could arise in two different sets of circumstances.
