Welcome to the new website of the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office.
This dedicated website has been set up to provide up-to-date information on a variety of aspects of the Boards and their work.
The website gives easy access to the searchable database of the decisions of the Enlarged Board of Appeal, the Legal Board of Appeal and the Technical Boards of Appeal, and to important texts relating to the appeal procedure, such as the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal (RPBA). Regular news items on the activities of the Boards will also appear on this site.
Please also note that as from 9 October 2017 the Boards of Appeal are located in Haar - welcome to our new premises!
President of the Boards of Appeal
