Filing fee 
Within the 31-month time limit the European filing fee must be paid, this being composed of a basic filing fee and an additional fee which is due for the 36th and each subsequent page of the application. In the case of Euro-PCT applications, the pages forming the basis for the procedure in the European phase are counted as set out below. The additional fee is referred to as the "page fee". 
The requirement to pay the European filing fee on entry into the European phase implements the right of the EPO as a designated/ elected Office to require payment of a "national fee" under Articles 22(1) and 39(1) PCT.
The basic filing fee is reduced where Form 1200 is filed online (see point 425).
