See ISPE Guidelines 6.07 to ISPE Guidelines 6.09.

A disclaimer which is allowable under Art. 34(2)(b) (see GL/PCT‑EPO H‑III, 4.1 and GL/PCT‑EPO H‑III, 4.2) does not change the identity of the invention within the meaning of Art. 8. Therefore, such a disclaimer could be introduced when drafting and filing a successive international application, without affecting the right to priority from the first application not containing the disclaimer.
