Date of availibility in OPS

Post by gsvinger » Wed May 24, 2017 2:32 pm

Dear EPO Team,

I have a question regarding the time when a new publication from JP, US or other countries is available in OPS.
As an example the US 9635772 B1 has been published on 25th April 2017, on which day could I first see it in OPS.

Dear user,

EPO publications are always published on Wednesdays at 2 pm CET and available in OPS at the same time. We do not monitor when individual records from other national offices become available to the public via our various products and services.

Kind regards,
OPS support
