Preliminary Meeting 2 – Tues 20th June – Register by Procedural Deadline C (13 June)
Location: Online via Microsoft Teams*
Registration process: From 9.15am
Start time: 10am
Attendees: Invited Parties who have pre-registered
Purpose: The purpose of the Preliminary Meeting is for the ExA to decide how the application will be examined and to hear your views on examination procedure. This is a follow on from Preliminary Meeting 1.
Note: If Deadline C submissions don’t justify the resumption of the PM2 ExA may close in writing without Part 2 taking place. IPs should not rely on Part 2 to make oral reps about Examination procedure – Preliminary Meeting 1 takes place on 6th June for which you must register by Deadline B (26th May).
The Preliminary Meeting is not an opportunity for you to give your views on the application. The merits of the application will only be considered once the Examination starts, which is after the Preliminary Meeting has closed.
FAQs v2 [PD-014] includes information about the purpose of, and preparation for, the Preliminary Meeting.
A note and recording of the meeting will be published under the Documents tab on the project webpage
