Notice dated 1 October 2001 concerning new patent application numbering system for 2002

OJ EPO 2001, 465

The current patent application numbering system has been in place since the establishment of the EPO. However the further implementation of the on-line filing possibilities in the framework of epoline® and the on-going growth of the Euro-PCT applications has necessitated a revision of the current patent application numbering system. The table below summarises the patent application numbering system which will be applicable as from 1 January 2002 and until further notice. The first two positions in the number reflect the filing year. Even though at present no EPC contracting states permit online filing via their national patent authorities, the European Patent Office has already reserved a series of numbers for the national patent offices.
