2.29.13 Numbering of Claims

Date Published

Where there is more than one claim the claims should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals beginning with “1”. Consistent with 2.29.1 Introduction, an objection is only mandatory where the numbering of the claims leads to a significant lack of clarity in the form and content of the specification.

Note: The relevant provisions are:

•  Formalities Determination (sec 10)
•  Schedule 3 (clause 5).

See 2.29 Formalities and Forms for further information.
