Headnote: In the light of G 0009/91 and G 0010/91 on the purpose of appeals, special attention must be given to late filed requests at the appeal stage when divisional applications are still pending. If the distinction between the subject-matter of the divisional applications is not clear and some of them are still pending before the department of first instance, it is inappropriate to admit, during oral proceedings at the appeal stage after opposition, new requests which are neither immediately allowable nor bona fide attempts to overcome objections raised.
Relevant legal provisions:
European Patent Convention 1973 Art 76
European Patent Convention 1973 Art 111
European Patent Convention 1973 R 86(3)
Keywords: Late filed requests - not admitted - appeal restricted to judicial review of the requests considered by the department of first instance - pending divisional applications
