Increase in INPI and EPO official fees

France :

Since April 1, 2020 the French PTO has posted its new applicable rates. While the official fees relating to the procedure for filing and granting a patent application remain unchanged, the annual fees for maintaining a patent have increased by 10€ for annuities from the 15th.

 

European Patent Office

Likewise, the EPO has been applying a new official fee rate schedule since April 1, 2020. This is why we insisted on getting your instructions and completing the formalities before the deadline for fee increases. This made it possible to maintain our tariffs at no additional cost and to carry out the formalities at the tariff announced.
