The update of our EPC.App reference book to legal status of 1st November 2022 is completed. Key changes since the last update in April were new Rule 56a and amended Rule 56 EPC, J 8/20 on AI inventors, the EPC accession of Montenegro, the introduction of WIPO Standard ST.26 for sequence listings, and further digitalization steps in EPO proceedings such as the full deployment of Central Fee Payment and MyEPO portfolio.
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 9th edition as standalone softcover books in English or German with same content.
