If the time limit for requesting further processing has been missed (see point 561
), a request for re-establishment of rights in respect of the period under Rule 135(1) EPC
may be filed. The request is not deemed to have been filed until the fee for re-establishment relating to the omitted act, i.e. payment of the designation fee under Rule 39 EPC
, has been paid. Attention is drawn to the further requirements under Article 122
and Rule 136 EPC
for the request to be admissible and allowable.
