Fees which need to be paid when filing a Euro-PCT application / Filing fee

 

Filing fee:

 

When filing a Euro-PCT patent application a filing fee has to be paid. The amount of this fee is:

 

  1. 115 EUR - when the Euro-PCT patent application is filed online,

  2. 200 EUR - when the Euro-PCT patent application is not filed online.

 

The filing fee has to be paid within 1 (one) month since filing of the Euro-PCT patent application.

If the application comprises more than 35 pages (not counting pages forming part of a sequence listing), an additional fee as part of the filing fee has also to be paid. The additional fee amounts 14 EUR for the 36th and for each subsequent page. This fee also must be paid within 1 (one) month of filing of the application.

If the filing fee and (if necessary) the additional fee are not paid in due time the application shall be deemed to be withdrawn.
