Previously, Rule 140 EPC was available for correction of obvious errors in the patent text (i.e. description, claims, and figures) after grant of a European patent. This is however not possible anymore following Enlarged Board of Appeal Decision G 1/10. It should be noted that the decision is explicitly not related to correction of errors in bibliographic data or priority data. An obvious error in the text of a granted patent can be corrected at the national patent offices, by filing an appeal against the Decision to Grant (if the error is caused by a transcription by EPO) , or during opposition proceedings at the EPO. An obvious error in a granted European patent should be read as if corrected.
