Guidelines for Examination

Debit orders for deposit accounts held with the EPO 

European patent applications and international (PCT) applications may be accompanied by a debit order for the fees due. To avoid the risk of payment being debited twice where a debit order is sent by fax, the original should not be filed subsequently (see points 6.2, 6.9 and 6.10 of the Arrangements for deposit accounts, Supplement to OJ EPO 3/2009). For the abolition of payments by cheque, see A-X, 2.
