PCT AG-IP 11.005 What is a “common representative” of the applicants?

Article 9
Rule 2.2bis

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.
