Synopsis

The aim of this webinar is to provide an overview of EPC standard legal remedies allowing the overcoming of a loss of rights and provisions offering safeguards in the case of non-observance of a time limit as a result of an exceptional occurrence. The webinar will in particular cover on further processing, re-establishment of rights and the exceptional situations governed by Rule 134 EPC. During the webinar a clear picture of the legal requirements governing all those procedural options will be given. This should help participants to identify the key issues and parameters that need to be taken into account to ensure a positive outcome.
