Explanations:

  • “First filing” refers to the national filing fee and national claims fee (or various PCT fees if first filing is a PCT application)
  • “ITS” means International Type Search, which is optional
  • “PCT fees” means the Transmittal fee, International filing fee, International page fee and International search fee.
  • “EPO fees” means the fees charged by EPO in the EP/PCT regional phase, namely filing fee, search fee, claims fee and examination fee

Additionally the following assumptions have been made:

  • The application is filed in paper form
  • Designation fees at EPO are not included
  • All applicable refunds in search fees are included.
  • Fees at the EPO are charged in EUR. They have been converted into DKK, NOK and ISK in order to make it possible to establish total sums and rounded off.
