Invention Information vs Addtional Information on espacenet

Post by foluso » Tue Sep 20, 2016 1:49 pm

When conducting a search on Espacenet, how can I distinguish between "Additional Information" and "Invention Information" in the cpc symbols displayed for a particular search result? Thanks

Invention Information vs Addtional Information on espacenet

Hi Franklyn,

The CPC codes for invention information are in a bold font and the additional information normal font, eg.,

EP2725662 (A2)
Cooperative classification: H01B11/02; H01R13/6463; H01R23/662; H01B7/0876; H01R12/79; H01R13/506

The first three codes are in bold font to indicate "inventive information" and the last three in normal font to show the "additional information".
Kind regards,

Thanks "Patent Information 2"! As a follow up question, would the 'First Invention Information' be the first bold symbol shown and then the remaining bold symbols be the remaining 'Invention Information'?
