Handbook of Quality Procedures Before the EPO
The ECP, epi and Business Europe have collaborated to produce a downloadable, fifty page guide to practice before the EPO. While not binding on Examiners, it was issued under the authority of the EPO and is a sort of mini-MPEP, intended for use by both applicants and Examiners. A copy is provided at the end of this post. You can obtain a copy of the guide and read more about it here.
