Federated register links

Post by jern » Tue Jun 09, 2020 9:18 am

Hi, in the EP register, the "Federated Register" section for an EP patent includes links to the register entries of national offices. Are these links accessible via the OPS? Thanks.

No, these are simple web service calls that we did to specific national registers for purpose of showing this Information to users of European Register's website only, if you want to build similar, you have to contact each of the offices and ask them if they offer web services for external users that you can then use.
