The tables in this booklet have been drawn up with great care, but their completeness and accuracy cannot be guaranteed. They are no substitute for consulting national legal sources and seeking professional advice where appropriate. National law is regularly updated and constantly evolving. So you may wish to consult the official publications of the participating member states to make sure that the legal provisions summarised in the tables are still up to date. The EPO will update the online version of this booklet whenever it is informed of any changes at a national level.
