In the latter half of 2018, the Boards of Appeal consulted widely on an update to their Rules of Procedure, culminating in a conference in Munich in December.  The institute, amongst many other parties, submitted a range of comments.  The consultation is now closed and conformation of the final version is expected soon.  We have a good idea of what will be coming out of the exercise, and there could be significant impact on practice not only before the Boards of Appeal, but before that in opposition and examination proceedings.  A range of speakers from CIPA and the EPO will be going through the changes and discussing the practical implications and every practitioner should make sure that they are up to speed with the potential consequences of the changes.
