APIs availability

Post by snegussie » Tue Jul 24, 2018 1:31 am

Are API's available to perform searches programmatically? We have thousands of patent numbers and filing dates that we would like to use to conduct patent searches using programs/code.

Depending on your needs, we offer the following web services: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... vices.html

If an amount of data you need is too much for a web service and depending on what kind of data you need (biblio, full text, images etc) we can also offer bulk data sets: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... -sets.html

For any question about web services or bulk data sets contact patentdata(at)epo.org directly.
