In cases of a non-unity finding by the EPO as SISA, applicants cannot pay additional search fees to obtain further searches as in the procedure before the ISA (see point 3.3.013
). However, within one month of the date of mailing of the SISR, they may request a review of the non-unity finding. They must also pay the review fee set by the EPO within the same time limit, direct to the EPO. If the review panel considers the lack of unity objection (partly) justified, a revised SISR taking into account the outcome of the review procedure is established.
