Case Law of the Boards of Appeal

 
 
5.5. Request for or notification of fee reduction

In T 905/90 (OJ 1994, 306, Corr. 556) it was held that neither a request for a fee reduction, nor a notification that only a reduced fee had been paid, was an essential part of the first act of the relevant proceedings. This was in contrast to the notice of appeal, which, although linguistically insensitive, was clearly essential to appeal proceedings (applying G 6/91; see also J 4/88, OJ 1989, 483).
