Summary of Facts and Submissions

I. The appeal contests the decision of the Opposition Division of the European Patent Office dated 21 July 1989 revoking the European patent No. 0 074 855. The decision was dispatched by registered letter with advice of delivery on 21 July 1989. The applicant filed a notice of appeal by telecopy received on 2 October 1989, confirmed by letter on 4 October 1989 and paid the fee for appeal on 2 October 1989. No Statement of Grounds was filed. The notice of appeal contains nothing that could be regarded as a Statement of Grounds pursuant to Article 108 EPC.

II. By a communication dated 17 May 1990 and sent by registered post, the Registry of the Board informed the Appellant that no Statement of Grounds had been filed and that the appeal could be expected to be rejected as inadmissible. The Appellant was invited to file observations within two months.

III. The Appellant filed no observations in response to said communication.

Reasons for the Decision

As no written statement setting out the grounds of appeal has been filed, the appeal has to be rejected as inadmissible (Article 108 EPC in conjunction with Rule 65(1) EPC).


For these reasons, it is decided that:

The appeal is rejected as inadmissible.
