From the European Patent Office Web site (see first link):

8. Grundsätze für die Ermessensausübung

Im Verfahren J 4/87 hatte der Beschwerdeführer geltend gemacht, daß es das EPÜ dem EPA nicht verbiete, bei außergewöhnlichen Verzögerungen in der Postzustellung nach eigenem Ermessen zu entscheiden. Nach Auffassung der Kammer hat das EPA jedoch rechtlich keine generelle Ermessensfreiheit dieser Art. Es kann nur dann nach eigenem Ermessen handeln, wenn es nach dem EPÜ dazu befugt ist.

Same page in English (see second link):

8. Principles for the exercise of discretion

In J 4/87 the appellant submitted that there was nothing in the EPC which prevented the EPO from exercising discretion in cases of exceptional delay in the post. The board, however, held that as a matter of law the EPO had no general discretion as suggested by the appellant. The EPO could only exercise discretion if the power to do so could be derived from the EPC.
