International filing fee: from EUR 1 097 to EUR 1 273
Fee per sheet in excess of 30: from EUR 12 to EUR 14
Reductions:
  • electronic filing (request not in character-coded format): from EUR 82 to EUR 96
  • electronic filing (request in character-coded format): from EUR 165 to EUR 191
  • electronic filing (in character-coded format): from EUR 247 to EUR 287
Handling fee for the demand: from EUR 165 to EUR 191
The amount of the international filing fee payable is the amount applicable on the date of receipt of the international application by the EPO
