Revised Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal (RPBA) will enter into force on 1 January 2020

On 1 January 2020, a revised version of the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal (RPBA) will enter into force. The new rules include several significant changes and introduce stricter standards for amendments to an appeal case relative to the first instance case. Since they will be retroactively applied to pending appeal cases, it may, in some cases, be prudent to supplement an appeal case by 31 December 2019 with a further submission.
