Please be informed that publication/application/priority numbers for the authority code ‘AP’ (ARIPO - African Regional Intellectual Property Organization) published after 2000 have been corrected.
The EPO has received a complete backfile from ARIPO including titles and abstracts. In order to process this data, the numbers already present in the database had to be corrected.
The correction had an impact on approximately 15 000 documents. Both publication and application/priority numbers are affected.
The change consists in adding the leading zero after the elements CCYY.
Please write to patentdata(a)epo.org
This is where the EPO's data experts will post changes and information on our data.
