|Headnote:||1. Separate written declarations cannot be regarded as an "instrument of transfer" within the meaning of Rule 20(1) EPC if one (in the present case the declaration of acceptance) is sent only to the EPO (see Reasons, point 5.1).
2. The "decisions in respect of entries in the Register of European Patents" reserved under Article 20 EPC for the Legal Division include any applying Rules 20, 21, 22 and 61 EPC. Requests for entries must be submitted to the Legal Division once an adverse decision within the meaning of Article 107, 1st sentence, EPC seems likely (see Reasons, point 2). This applies mutatis mutandis to decisions applying Rule 19 EPC (see Reasons, points 6.3 and 6.4).
