Lower PCT Fees from September

The cost for filing a PCT application will drop significantly in September. The International filing fee is being reduced from $1300 to $1147 from 1 September 2010, and, as of 15 September 2010, the Search fees using the European Patent Office as the International search Authority will cost $2185 instead of $2485. Additional page fees – past the first 30 (including forms) will be reduced from $15 a page to $13 a page.

The official fees for a PCT application, will, therefore be about 15% cheaper which is good news for applicants!
