Zero Search results

Post by Patent Newbie » Thu Apr 09, 2015 4:29 pm

I am looking for a particular patent application and when I type in the number, I get "0" results.

Can someone please tell me that I am doing wrong?

Many thanks in advance,

Dear Nelly,

The European Patent Register allows you to consult published EP, EURO-PCT and PCT files. Retrieving zero results could be due to one of the following reasons:

• perhaps the document you are looking for is not a EP, Euro - PCT, or PCT;
• the application has not yet been published;
• the application has been withdrawn;

Kind regards,
