GA C IV 4 Representation before the EPO as SISA

285
Applicants may be represented before the EPO as SISA by the agent appointed on filing the international application and having the right to practise before the receiving Office, i.e. the agent for the international phase (see points 36 ff).
286
An applicant may also appoint an agent to represent him specifically before the EPO in its capacity as SISA. Moreover, the agent appointed for the international phase - and thus including for the procedure before the SISA - may appoint a sub-agent to represent the applicant specifically before the EPO as SISA. All communications issued by the EPO as SISA are sent to the agent specifically appointed for the procedure before the EPO as SISA. An agent specifically appointed to act before the EPO as SISA must be entitled to practise before the EPO (see point 97).
287
The requirements in respect of filing a separate power of attorney or a copy of a general power of attorney have been waived by the EPO as SISA (see point 109).
