Dec. 2017 - RU: Deletion of RU-C documents

Post by EPO / Patent Data Services » Mon Dec 11, 2017 5:19 pm

Please be informed that 18.945 RU-C publications were deleted.

The reason for this exercise is that we have received data from ROSPATENT covering the years 1994 to 2016. When checking the contents of the file against the collection of SU publications currently present in the master database, we realised that 18.945 publications had inadvertently been loaded as RU-C.

To be able to start loading the SU data provided by ROSPATENT, these publications had to be removed from the database first.

We trust that this clean-up will result in better SU and RU data quality.
