The European Patent Office has introduced its new fee schedule effective from 1st April 2008 in which excess claim fees are only payable for each claim over 15 (as compared with each claim over 10 previously), but such additional claims are subject to a large €200 fee per claim.  Applicants are therefore encouraged to review their claim sets prior to or immediately after entering the European regional phase of international applications.

From April 2009, each claim over 50 will attrach a fee of €500 and there will also be a charge (€12) for each of the 36th and subsequent pages of the specification.

For more information on the EPO Fees, please see the relevant section of the EPO website here.
