Is it possible to search for representatives within OPS?

Post by marten » Sun Jul 18, 2010 1:48 pm

Dear OPS Team,

I would like to search for all patent applications that have been handled by a certain representative.
In Register Plus this functionality already exists (https://register.epoline.org/espacenet/regviewer) and I was wondering
if OPS already supports these kinds of search requests?

Thanks for your kind assistance.

Best regards,
Marten Schirge

Dear Mr Schirge,

At present, the OPS does not support such search requests. The representative is not present in our worldwide database. However we do have the information for the European data and we are already working on adding Register information in the OPS (Register Data in XML). We hope to have a testing environment ready by the end of this year.

Kind regards,

OPS support

Dear OPS support,

Did anything change in the meantime with regard to the possibility of searching by representative names in ops?

Thank you for your effort.

Best,

Dear user,

With introduction of OPS REST we now offer OPS Register as well.
http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/r ... =re%3Darn
Register in OPS supports same services and queries as EP Register does. The only exception is that at present we don't offer service for downloading file wrapper via OPS and we have no SOAP for OPS Register. To use OPS Register you have to register to OPS v 3.1 as described on our OPS website.

Kind regards,
OPS Support
