Rules relating to Fees

The EPC 2000 makes a number of changes to existing procedures and introduces some new procedures such as the limitation procedure and petition for review. The Rules relating to Fees have been amended accordingly:

  • the amounts of certain fees have been modified
  • some fees have been deleted and
  • new fees have been introduced.

The amended Rules relating to Fees will enter into force on the same date as the EPC 2000, i.e. on the 13.12.2007.
