Open Service Register Data Documents

Post by Leap2 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 8:27 am

We are trying to get all the register documents for EP assets. We checked for EP 2626777 in the following URL: ... ab=doclist

there are 226 pages in total for this Asset but in the OPS Published Image retrieval service there are only ~35 pages.

We wanted to use OPS APIs to get the same data
Is the API we are using correct? Or is there an alternate endpoint in the API service which provides the 226 pages.

Our PDF documents in European Patent Register ( so called file wrappers) are not available or any kind of bulk loading. They are not meant to be taken over into the third party databases or search engines and7or being distributed by the third party. So unfortunately, we cannot offer you any solution to get file wrappers at present. You can only see/load and print them on the Register website but you are not allowed to load them in a bulk or include them in your products. If that would be allowed, we would offer them in OPS Register.
