Switzerland joins the Federated European Patent Register!

Post by EPO / Patent Information » Wed Jan 27, 2016 5:35 pm

Switzerland has now joined the Federated European Patent Register!!!!

The Federated Register view displays official bibliographic and legal status data relating to European patents in the national post-grant phase of the designated states concerned. It’s important to know that this information is hosted in the national patent registers, not in the European Patent Register. The Federated Register retrieves this legal status information and displays it in the European Patent Register. The accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of these national legal status data are the responsibility of the participating national offices.

In this first proof of concept version the participating member states are Austria, Ireland, Finland, Luxembourg, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Switzerland.

More national offices will participate as the corresponding technical infrastructures are developed and implemented.
