OPS Register existing schema definition (rplus.xsd) to be amended soon

Post by EPO / OPS Support » Mon Nov 16, 2020 3:26 pm

Dear users of OPS Register,

UPDATE December 2020 - we have postponed this to January 2021

We are in a process of amending OPS Register, by amending existing schema definition (rplus.xsd): https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... s/ops.html, and the associated responses.

The release date will be announced in the next days, at the moment we are aiming for 30 November 2020.

OPS clients that have used the rplus.xsd as currently available on the website to validate responses, will need to be adapted to use the new rplus.xsd to consume the new data provided.

As soon as we have new rplus schema definitions loaded on the mentioned website and exact day of release we will let you know via announcement published in this OPS forum.

At this point in time I don't have more details, but we will add them as they get confirmed.
Look out for next maintenance release announcement, it will be connected to this announced change.

Vesna for OPS support
