How to reduce or avoid payment of some EPO Official fees for registration of European patent Part 2 , Additional fee for application containing more than 35 pages

According to the regulations related to European Patent Convention (EPC) , additional fee is to be paid for patent application comprising more than 35 pages.   In this regard for  any patent application which consists of more than 35 pages the applicant is obliged to pay to European Patent Office (EPO) additional fee for the 36th and for each additional page.

The EPO additional fee for the 36th and each additional page amounts EUR 15,- for each page.


Accordingly the applicant may avoid payment of this additional fee  in case when its patent application comprises up to 35 pages.

In case of International patent application entering into European National Phase, the applicant can avoid payment of this additional fee by reducing the number of patent application pages to 35 on entering such application into European National Phase.
