25/02/2020: EPO Official Fee Changes

Dear Clients,

The European Patent Office (EPO) has announced that the official fees charged for European (EP) patent applications will be increasing from 1 April 2020. More details of the fee increases can be found here.

All of the annual renewal fees are increasing by about 4% on average.  However, any renewal fees that fall due in April, May, or June 2020 can be paid in advance, before the fee increase comes into effect.

In view of this official fee increase, if you would like to renew a case early to secure the lower fees, please ensure IPRIS is provided with instructions via the IPRIS Portal before 10th March 2020. We kindly request that advance instructions for EP cases are not submitted in the same order as instructions for other countries.

For EP applications that are on auto-renew, clients will have to email IPRIS ( to request early payment. Please include an export of the cases from the IPRIS Portal in your request.

Kind Regards,

The IPRIS Team
