Rule 139150 Correction of errors in documents filed with the European Patent Office
Part VII – Implementing Regulations to Part VII of the Convention
Chapter VI – Amendments and corrections
Linguistic errors, errors of transcription and mistakes in any document filed with the European Patent Office may be corrected on request. However, if the request for such correction concerns the description, claims or drawings, the correction must be obvious in the sense that it is immediately evident that nothing else would have been intended than what is offered as the correction.
