Sufficient disclosure is given to perform a teaching if the person skilled in the art is capable, without inventive skill and without unreasonable burden, of performing the teaching of the patent claim practically and with the desired success on the basis of the overall disclosure of the patent specification in combination with general technical knowledge on the day of registration or of priority.
The question whether the invention is disclosed with sufficient clarity and detail that a person skilled in the art can perform it only arises with respect to the test for grounds for revocation according to Art.

II(6)(1) No. 1 of that Act.
