Divisional applications must be filed direct with the EPO in Munich, The Hague or Berlin. They can be filed in electronic form (see point 4.3.001
). The language of the proceedings is always the same as for the earlier (parent) application. If the parent application was filed in a language other than the language of the proceedings, the divisional application may also be filed in this other language. Then, however, a translation into the language of the proceedings of the parent application must be filed within two months.
