French (FR) Coverage of Claims Description

Post by patentmaster » Mon May 01, 2017 3:07 pm


It is mentioned in this FAQ ... tml#faq-74
that FR Claims and Description are available via the OPS.

I have tried to retrieve claims and description of e.g. FR2976786 (a French only patent with no equivalents) but to no avail, e.g. I have tried variations of ... 2976786.A3 via the API console.

How should I form the URL in order to retrieve the claims and description via OPS of the FR patent application mentioned above?

FR claims/ descriptions will only be visible in the 3.2 version. They were suppose to be switched on during last release, but unfortunately that didn't happen as planed. Now we need to wait till next release. When the releases take place is usually announced in the Announcement section of this forum
