Online Filing

Use the Online Filing software to file EP, Euro-PCT and PCT applications and requests for unitary effect; submissions in opposition, appeal, limitation and revocation proceedings before the EPO; and subsequently filed documents for all EP and UP proceedings. You can also use it to file applications and documents with participating national offices.

New for January 2023: filing of early requests for unitary effect and requests for delaying the issuance of the decision to grant a European patent in response to a communication under Rule 71(3) EPC.

You can also use Online Filing 2.0 or the Web-Form Filing.  See online filing options comparison table.
