PCT Fee changes as of January 1, 2018

The PCT Assembly has established new equivalent amounts for the fees regarding the filing of international application including handling and search fees. The final values for each Receiving Office are slightly changed due to the fluctuation of Swiss franc/ Euro exchange rates which initiate increase/decrease in local currencies for approximately 5-8% in general. The updated fees become effective as of January 1, 2018.
