11.005. What is a “common representative” of the applicants? Where there are two or more applicants and they have not appointed a common agent representing all of them for the purposes of the international phase in general, one of the applicants may be appointed by the other applicants as their common representative. A person may only be appointed as common representative if he is a national or resident of a Contracting State and thus is entitled himself to file an international application.
