Nov. 2019 - PE: Correction of publication and application numbers

Post by EPO / Patent Data Services » Tue Nov 19, 2019 2:48 pm

We have performed a correction of publication/application numbers for authority code ‘PE’. Approximately 20.000 documents were affected.

These documents had inadvertently been loaded with CCYY at the end of the number instead of CCYY at the start of the number. This has now been fixed.

Publication numbers
First in range / Last in range
Kind code = A1
OLD PE 00012000A1 / PE 24652014A1
NEW PE 20000001A1 / PE 20142465A1
Kind code = Z
OLD PE 00012003Z / PE 24672014Z
NEW PE 20030001Z / PE 20142467Z

Application/Priority numbers
First in range / Last in range
Kind code = A
OLD PE 0000012001A / PE 0033772018A
NEW PE 2001000001A / PE 2018003377A
Kind code = U
OLD PE 0000012012U / PE 0033702018U
NEW PE 2012000001U / PE 2018003370U
