Sorry for the naive question.
I read the instructions by EPO and WIPO on how to file a PCT patent. The EPO documentations vaguely states that if the local legislation mandates a legal representative then it is mandatory when the patent is filed via the EPO office. But I could not find anywhere whether as a European resident I have to name a representative if I file a patent by myself as inventor and applicant. I mean an ePCT application via the EPO office.
