The European Patent Convention (EPC) provides an autonomous legal system for the granting of European patents via a single, harmonised procedure before the EPO.

13th edition, 2007

This 13th edition of the European Patent Convention (EPC) contains the texts of the Convention, its Implementing Regulations and protocols and the Rules relating to Fees which will apply once the EPC Revision Act of 29 November 2000 enters into force1, together with an extract from the Revision Act and the transitional provisions.

A concordance list showing the new provisions and their counterparts in the text valid prior to the revised EPC's entry into force is set out in Annex II. The index of G decisions is retained as Annex I, and the keyword index has been updated in accordance with the new texts.
