The order (or "operative part") of the decision, must clearly state the request of the parties and the extent to which this request is complied with (T 756/14). It may be, for example, as follows:

"The European patent application ... is hereby refused pursuant to Art. 97(2) EPC.";

"The opposition to the European patent ... is hereby rejected."; or

"The request for re-establishment of rights is hereby rejected".
