Different text where a partial transfer of right takes place pursuant to Art. 61 in examination proceedings

If by a final decision pursuant to Art. 61 it is adjudged that a third party is entitled to the grant of a European patent in respect of only part of the matter disclosed in the European patent application, the original European patent application must contain, "where appropriate", for the designated Contracting States in which the decision was taken or recognised, claims, a description and drawings which are different from those for the other designated Contracting States (see also H-III, 4.1 and C-IX, 2).
