Re: Missing claims and description data on case

Hi, There should indeed be claims/description for WO publication available via OPS. I have reported that back to colleagues and they will fix that asap. EP A in this case would not have any claims/description in OPS because we don't re-publish such WO as EP due to Article 153/3 EPC: "The internation...

We offer DOCDB rules as a table (2 tables: Publication and Application/Priority) here: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-patents/data/coverage/regular.html As far as orig...

Re: No results found due to inconsistent publication IDs?

Hi, The difference between a webservice like OPS and a search tool like Espacenet is that search tools are set to use different business rules that allow you to find documents even if your number is not exactly correct (+ or - 0, with fuzzy search etc for example).
