A list of costs, with supporting evidence in respect of each amount involved, must be attached to the request. Costs may be fixed once their credibility is established.[Rule 88(2); ]
The parties will be notified of the costs as fixed by the formalities officer acting for the opposition division.[Art. 119; ]
For an explanation of the duties entrusted to the formalities officers, see D‑II, 7.
