Costs of proceedings

The costs of the proceedings are set according to the principles of Articles 108–113 VRPG.


If an appeal is fully approved, no costs shall be levied for the proceedings.


The complainant shall bear the costs of proceedings if its appeal is unsuccessful. In general, these amount to a lump sum of CHF 300 if the appeal is rejected. If the appeal is partially approved, the costs of proceedings shall be reduced accordingly.


The complainant may withdraw its appeal by submitting written and signed documentation to this effect at any time until the Appeal Committee makes its decision. In the event of withdrawal, the costs of proceedings shall not exceed CHF 50.
