The request for such a decision, stating the reasons on which it is based, must be filed with the EPO in writing within one month after the date of notification of the fixing of costs by the Opposition Division. It is not deemed to be filed until the fee for the awarding of costs has been paid at the rate prescribed in the Rules relating to Fees under the EPC.

The Opposition Division will take a decision on the request without oral proceedings.
