Response to consultation on the proposals for a new EQE

This submission is made on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA). Thanks to Sheila Wallace for preparing this submission.

Most of the responses received by CIPA did not provide comments in direct response to the specific questions set out in the online questionnaire on the EPO website as the questionnaire contained relatively few open questions and they found the format too restrictive. Many respondents made it clear that they had registered with WISEflow and had tried the model exam papers in that environment. Their responses are therefore directly relevant to some of the questions in the online questionnaire, particularly those in the sections of the questionnaire relating to “Assessment methodologies” and “Design & Modularity”. Other respondents raised more general concerns and questions about the proposals that are outside the scope of the online questionnaire. We have therefore attempted to divide the comments that we have received into two categories, one relating to specific topics included in the online questionnaire and the other relating to more general concerns and questions about the proposals.
