8.030. When must the applicable fees be paid? Both the supplementary search fee and the supplementary search handling fee must be paid to the International Bureau within one month from the date of receipt of the supplementary search request. If they are not paid in full within that time limit, a late payment fee will become due (see Form PCT/IB/377). If the fees remain unpaid, the International Bureau will consider the request not to have been submitted.
