Re: It is interesting

Although the EPO have not been the fastest at getting examination reports out, they are generally very good at what they do: I still hold them as the gold standard of patent examination worldwide (source :I am a patent attorney who regularly deals with US, JP, CN, EP and UK patent offices).

It is very easy to be fast if you are willing to let standards slip - i.e. grant invalid patents.

There is always the option to accelerate (under PACE) when they are slow.
