If I am not mistaken, there is a way to know the date of a next B1 publication, but I can't remember how to get it.
In case I am right, could you please tell me how?
Thanks in advance,

You may use the date of "Decision to grant a European patent", this communication being available in the dossier of an EP document (see section "All documents" in the European Patent Register).

Once this communication becomes available in the dossier (it is usually published on a Thursday), the B1 document is usually published 4 weeks later.

Does this information help?

Oh, I think I read a note saying that my post would not be published till I receive a confirmation, which I did never recieve. Therefore I did not read your answer till now, when I did enter the web coincidentally.

Coming to the point: yes, Patrick, your information helps and resolves my concern.

Many thanks,
