Kind code

Post by dschmauss » Wed Nov 27, 2019 9:14 am


Is there a possibility to involve the kind code of publication into a search?

F.ex.: I want to find all granted EP-Patents of an applicant, I would involve the Kind code "B". But that doesn't seem to work.

Thanks for your Input!

Dear user,
in new Espacenet you need to specify which type of B document you are searching or simply use a wildcard. E.g. with PN= EPB* you will find all EP families that have a publication with the kind code B.
Unfortunately, currently often the document with the kind code A is shown in the result list. Please select the publication of interest in the Bibliographic data tab.
Kind regards
