If the EPO is IPEA for an international application originally filed in Dutch with the Dutch or Belgian patent office as receiving Office, the applicant need not file a translation of the international application since the EPO as IPEA will use the published version of the international application which it receives from the IB. It should be noted that the demand and amendments under Article 34 PCT must be submitted to the EPO as IPEA in the language of the international publication (see points 208 and 332).
