European Patent Register

The European Patent Register is a free internet service from the EPO which

  • stores all the publicly available information the EPO has on European patent applications as they pass through the grant procedure
  • contains procedural information on all European patent applications from the moment they are published
  • allows you to access the data in Espacenet and Open Patent Services (patent family information and INPADOC legal status)
  • contains all the public documents in the EPO's files, including correspondence between the EPO and the applicant/attorney.

To access the Register from Espacenet all you have to do is click on the EP Register button on the bibliographic data screen.
