application for interpretation; application filed by the organisation
The other questions entail, in substance, a request for an advisory opinion from the Tribunal [...]. However, it is not for the Tribunal to advise the parties with any particularity about what they should do or refrain from doing and whether a proposed course of conduct is in conformity with, or violates, provisions in the Service Regulations. In the event that either party, and the EPO in particular because it is amenable to proceedings against it in a further complaint or other proceedings, behaves unlawfully, the conduct is open to review.
application for execution; competence of tribunal
Both the EPO and the complainant must approach the implementation of the orders in a rational, sensible and balanced way and, as a paramount consideration, do so lawfully (see, for example, Judgment 3823, under 4).
