Programmatically Download "All Documents" (EPO Register)

Post by pzypher » Thu Sep 13, 2018 7:56 am


we would like to download "All documents" of an EPO Register programmatically, e.g. ... ab=doclist

I couldn't find any API endpoint that allows that so far. Is it even possible/allowed?

File wrapper in Register is not available for bulk download. It can only be reviewed manually, over the website version of the European Patent Register. At some point in time, it will be available over OPS, but we don't have any specific information when exactly that will be.

Vesna for OPS support
