The revision of the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal (RPBA) is a key measure for increasing the efficiency and predictability of appeal proceedings before the Boards of Appeal of the EPO.
At the "User consultation conference", users of the system will have the opportunity to hear presentations and panel discussions by members of the Boards of Appeal Committee, the Boards of Appeal and representatives of user associations on the revised public draft of the RPBA. This draft will be made available in good time before the conference.
For more information and registration, please see User consultation conference on the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal.
