May 2017 - Concordance tables have been updated

Post by EPO / Patent Data Services » Mon May 22, 2017 2:01 pm

Every few months we make sure to published update of all available concordance tables, such as Publication number concordance table, Application/Priority number concordance table and Kind code concordance table.

Those tables are important to everyone who searches DOCDB-related databases or purchases EPO raw data products like 14.7 DOCDB or PATSTAT Biblio raw data product. They are also useful for GPI users who search using DOCDB number format and to users of OPS web services.

Tables are available here: ... gular.html

Latest versions include following changes and modifications to formats since last update in March (last update was in week 14/2017):

* AT formats modified
* AP formats modified
* RU formats modified
* PT formats modified
* LU formats modified
* FI formats modified
* EP formats modified
* CN formats modified
* SA formats added

Please note that tables distinguish between changes/modifications already executed and those in a planning phase only
