Field definitions in Register alert data

Post by gerben » Fri Oct 04, 2019 3:17 pm

Dear Register Team,

When manually entering data into register alerthttps://register.epo.org/alertadd, the fields reference and description are indicated to be limited to 25 resp. 100 characters. In the online help for importing files via a .csv upload https://register.epo.org/help?lng=en&topic=import, these limits are defined as 15 resp. 50 characters.
I assume these limits should be the same in both locations, if so please correct the wrong one.

Dear gerben,
Thank you for indicating this error. We will initiate an update to the text immediately. The number of characters allowed in the reference and description field were very recently updated to 25 in the reference field and 100 in the description field.
Kind regards,

The Patent Information User Support Team
