Online Filing software – new update now available

1 April 2016 update

The EPO is pleased to inform users of its Online Filing software that a new update 5.09.149 for Version 5.09 (build 5.09.148 or higher) is now available for download.

Users who prefer not to install it will, however, still be able to file online without any adverse procedural effects.

Users who have activated the Live Update function will be notified automatically.

The April update contains:

  • New features and minor functional changes

Those still using older supported versions of Online Filing V5 (build 5.07.118 up to build 5.08.140) can download a separate update reflecting only the EP fees as of 1 April 2016. The new fees apply only to drafts and templates created on or after 1 April 2016.
