Enrolment

How to enrol

Enrolment for the EPAC 2022 will open on 5 September 2022.

To enrol, please complete the following steps:

  1. Request the creation of your personal profile.
  2. Confirm your email address by clicking the confirmation link we will send you by email. Make sure to check your spam folder for the confirmation email.
  3. Request verification of your identity by uploading an electronic copy of a valid passport or identity card.

  4. Steps 1 to 3 must be completed by 30 September 2022, otherwise you will not be able to enrol.

  5. Once you receive confirmation that your identity has been verified, you will have until 14 October 2022 to request enrolment for the EPAC 2022 and pay the prescribed fee.

Please note that the deadlines are strictly enforced.

Fees

Fees for the EPAC 2022 are payable by credit card or bank transfer only.
Please note that the closing date for enrolment will be strictly observed and applications for enrolment will be deemed not to have been filed unless the prescribed fees have been validly paid.

As bank transfers can take several days to process, this method of payment is not recommended near the closing date for enrolment. Credit card payment is recommended as the fastest method.

Fees may not be paid by debiting an EPO deposit account.

Languages

The examination papers are drawn up in the three official languages of the EPO (English, French and German). You must select the official language you wish to sit the exam in when enrolling.
