Moreover, it is important to note that under the RFeesUPP, some core procedural provisions of the Rules relating to Fees
under the EPC, namely Articles 4 RFees
to Article 8 RFees
and Articles 12 RFees
and Article 13 RFees
(due dates, payment of fees, particulars concerning payments, date to be considered as the date on which payment is made, insufficiency of the amount paid), apply mutatis mutandis
to the Unitary Patent. This means, in particular, that payments may be made by any person, including persons who are obliged to be represented.
