This revised version of the Guidelines for Examination will apply as from 1 November 2015. Until then, the September 2014 edition of the Guidelines remains valid.

2.1 Fixing of costs by the Opposition Division

At the request of at least one party, the Opposition Division must fix the amount of the costs to be paid under a decision apportioning them. The request is admissible only if the decision apportioning the costs has become final.

A bill of costs, with supporting evidence in respect of each amount involved, must be attached to the request. Costs may be fixed once their credibility is established.

The parties will be notified of the costs as fixed by the Opposition Division.

For the allocation of the duty of fixing the costs, see D‑II, 7.
