The update of our EPC.App reference book to legal status of 1st April 2023 is completed. Key changes since the last update in November were the new EPO Guidelines as of March 2023, G 2/21 on plausibility, amendments to Rules 46, 49, 50, 57, 82 on format requirements of application documents as well as to Rule 65 on the transmittal of the search report, the increase of EPO fees, and the upcoming UPCA entry into force.
In the self-editable online version of our EPC commentary, all changes of the update are rolled-out automatically, while personal user annotations from before the update are retained. They can be exported into a customized printable PDF offline version, which may further be ordered as colored paperback via the integrated print-on-demand service. As usual, we also released this 10th edition as standalone softcover books in English or German with same content.
