Guidelines for Examination

 
 
2.4
Formulae and tables 

The claims, as well as the description, may contain chemical or mathematical formulae but not drawings. The claims may contain tables but "only if their subject-matter makes the use of tables desirable". In view of the use of the word "desirable" in this Rule, the examiner should not object to the use of tables in claims where this form is convenient.
