- Event date : 2015/02/11

Dear wrekelsein,

If this is how the entry appears in the search tool used, it looks as if
the status at that time referred to all designated countries mentioned in
the same entry. Nevertheless we need to be sure that the information
displayed is correct …

Therefore we recommend to get in touch with us via support@epo.org by
providing the related application number in order to confirm the legal status
of your patent.
Kind regards,

The Patent Information User Support Team
