May 2019 - INPADOC: changes to statistics file

Post by EPO / Patent Data Services » Wed May 22, 2019 4:16 pm

An enhanced INPADOC coverage file is available on this page from 23 May 2019 onwards: ... eekly.html

Please check out the file stored in the section "Contents and coverage of the INPADOC legal status file".

The excel sheet with the name INPADOC_coverage_yyyymmdd.xlsx is the combination of the two tables that had been published on that page so far : statistics_authority_code_yyyymmdd.xlsx and legal_code_decription_yyyymmdd.xlsx.

The list provided in the section "Legal status codes" remains unchanged.
