Revising the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal is essential to enhancing the efficiency and predictability of appeal proceedings before the Boards of Appeal of the EPO.

The first public draft of the revised Rules of Procedure has already undergone an online user consultation procedure and a second draft of the revised Rules of Procedure, amended according to user feedback, now includes new provisions on case management.

On 5 December users will be welcome to attend presentations and panel discussions on the revised public draft of the Rules of Procedure, held by members of the Boards of Appeal Committee and Boards of Appeal as well as by representatives of user associations.
