Corrections of clerical or grammatical errors are usually allowed, insofar as it is evident that an error has occurred and what the correction should be.[Rule 139; Art. 123(2); ]
However, correction of errors in the description, claims and drawings is a special form of amendment and is bound by Art. 123(2) (G 2/95, see also H‑VI, 2.2.1). These errors can be corrected as set out below.
