Details

This form must be used when filing:

  1. a translation into English of the claims of an application for a European patent (UK) (section 78(7) applies); or
  2. the correction of any such previously-filed translation, provided that the correction is intended to correct the scope of protection conferred by the translation to accord with the broader scope of protection conferred by the translated document (section 80(3) applies).

A written request for correction of an error in the original language specification of a European patent (UK) should be made under rule 105. A written request for correction of a previously filed translation other than as described in note c(2) above should also be made under rule 105.

You must file this form and the translation with an additional copy of each. If you want to file different translations you must use a separate form for each translation.

If you are filing a translation of the claims of an application for a European patent (UK) in accordance with note c(1) then leave part 5 blank. If you are filing a correction of a translation in accordance with note c(2) then you should state in part 5 the date on which the grant or amendment of the European patent (UK) was mentioned in the European Patent Bulletin.
