EPO-Board of Appeal Proceedings

Let's talk about some of the "newly" introduced procedural aspects of the EPO Board of Appeal

Graham Ashley was a member of an EPO Board of Appeal for 14 years, the last 7 of which he was Chairman of a Mechanics Board and a member of the Enlarged Board of Appeal. During this time he presided over more than 500 cases. His board was instrumental in establishing the principle of convergence, which raises the bar of admissibility for parties. In his presentation, he will explain the main guidelines for changes in the appeal procedure and describe the practical implementation of the convergence principle at the EPO. Following his presentation, he will be available for discussion and questions, which will be moderated by Nathalie Kirchhofer.
