Most of the provisions can be found in Annex II, Part C, Section 1 and 2 of the Grant Agreement. However, for certain types of FP7 projects, more specific IPR provisions may be found in Annex III, such as the ones applicable to research actions for SMEs or for SME associations. In specific cases, "special clauses" may also be included in Article 7 of the core Grant Agreement with rules concerning IP. A list of all “special clauses” is available with the Model Grant Agreement.

Moreover, it is important to be aware that in addition to the standard Model Grant Agreement, separate models have been adopted for the parts of the 'Cooperation' (Space, Security), the 'Capacities' (Research for the benefit of SME's) and the 'People' (Marie Curie) Specific Programmes that are under REA responsibility, and for the 'Ideas' (European Research Council) Specific Programmes.
