Amendments for regional phase entry

Post by chrishemingway » Mon May 17, 2010 1:35 pm

On filing form 1200 where the EPO is a designated office, on the Documents tab there is a tickbox for 'Enclosed Amendments'. We wish to file new claims on entry into the regional phase (no amendments prior).

After speaking to the EPO helpdesk, they said to tick the aforementioned box. However, this seems to imply that the amended claims were filed under Art19 PCT. But if we do not tick the box, we cannot add them under the Amendments tab - only under the Other tab.

What is the correct procedure?

The advice is correct - the tick box does not refer to the above static text but indicates that further amendments are enclosed. For confirmation of this statement see the ticks on the resulting PDF form.
