Judgment No. 4638
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant challenges his appraisal report for 2015.
performance report; rating; complaint dismissed
[T]he exercise which the complainant invites the Tribunal to carry out with regard to his productivity targets, overall rating, certain allegedly wrong or incorrect figures and, in his view, inappropriate applications of the new method for processing patent applications known as “BEST” (Bringing Examination and Search Together) and the PAX calculation rules is essentially a fresh appraisal of his performance for 2015. However, that misconstrues the Tribunal’s role in this area in view of its limited power of review under its settled case law (see, for example, Judgments 4564, consideration 3, and 3252, consideration 6, also cited in [...] Judgment 4637, consideration 13).
