What's new in the European Patent Register?

Post by EPO / Patent Information » Thu Nov 26, 2015 8:38 am

A new release of the European Patent Register went live last night. The changes you will see are as follows:

Elimination of Quick search - You can still search by Publication number, Application number and Filing date in the Advanced search and Smart search.

Search results list: sorting by representative - You can now sort the Search results list by representative. It will sort representative names alphabetically in ascending or descending order.

Document navigation - A navigation command is now displayed in all panels, i.e. About this file, Legal status, Federated register, Event history, Citations, Patent family and All documents. This makes it easy to navigate from one patent document to the next without having to return to the Search results list.

Federated European Patent Register - The Federated register tab is now enabled for granted patents only. Otherwise it is greyed out. Also, for better readability, the countries indicated in the table now appear alternately in grey and white. Column headings within the Federated Register have been changed To reflect more accurately what is meant, the heading Register last updated now reads Record last updated. This column displays the date on which the record was last updated or, if this date is not available, the date on which the national register was last updated.

Deep links to extension states - Deep links to the registers of extension states will remain inactivate until the fee for these extension states has been paid.

Please feel free to post your comments on these changes to the European Patent Register and Federated European Patent Register.
