Applying for a patent
Request for registration of changes relating to an entry in the list of professional representatives before the European Patent Office
|Request for registration of changes relating to an entry in the list of professional representatives before the European Patent Office (Form 52301 03.15)||editable form (PDF, 472 KB)|
|Data protection consent form (Form 52301a 03.15)||editable form (PDF, 472 KB)|
- The consent form (EPO Form 52301a) must be filed together with the request for registration of changes (EPO Form 52301) if you were entered on the list of professional representatives before 2006 and have not already filed a data protection consent form or if you wish to change your existing data protection status as registered with the Legal Division.
- Where changes affect representatives belonging to the same company/law firm, please list all the representatives concerned on an additional sheet. In this case, the request filed by one of the representatives of the company/law firm in question is sufficient for the purpose of requesting registration of the changes. The representative signing the request is deemed by the EPO to be acting on behalf of all representatives named in the request belonging to the same company/law firm. The same applies to the declaration on data protection. The entry of each representative concerned will be amended according to the request for registration of changes. However, the requesters may still submit an individual request and/or declaration on data protection if they so wish.
- Please note that requests for registration of changes (with the exclusion of the documents submitted as evidence) belong to the public part of the file of any pending European patent applications concerned (see Article 128(4) EPC).
