Searching for applicants and inventors in a particular country

Post by EPO / Patent Information » Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:06 am

Search for applicants from a particular country, by entering the country code in square brackets, e.g. [GB]. You can enter the country code alone or together with the name of the applicant/inventor in the Applicant(s)/Inventor(s) field in Advanced search.

Depending on the reason for your search it is important to bear in mind that only about 40% of the documents in Espacenet are indexed with countries of residence for inventors and applicants, and that coverage can vary from country to country.
