From the EPLAW President's letter dated 4 June, 2015:

"EPLAW is pleased to see that the Administrative Committee (AC) and the EPO are actively engaged in furthering the independence of the BoA.

"We note that in the meantime the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) in its letter to Mr. Jesper Kongstad of the AC of 15 May 2015 (copy enclosed) has provided various detailed comments to the Proposal. EPLAW is in full agreement with these comments which, given their general and fundamental nature, lend themselves to be addressed to the EPO as well.

"Two aspects of the Proposal cause most concern to EPLAW."
