Global dossier now extended to include USPTO data

Global dossierThe EPO has extended the Global dossier service to include file wrapper data from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

The project is an initiative by the EPO, JPO, KIPO, China’s State Industrial Property Office (SIPO) and the USPTO, collectively referred to as the IP5 offices, who agreed to make available information produced by each office in a family of patent applications (applications for the same invention filed at multiple offices). The aim is to simplify access to important information pertaining to these dossiers both for users and the public, and to enhance the transparency of the patent system.

The addition of this new data completes the coverage of file wrapper information from the IP5 Offices:

The first EPO Global Dossier was launched last June with European and Chinese dossier content the service was extended to Espacenet in October 2014. Data from Japan and Korea was added in April this year. The information is available free of charge in Espacenet and the European Patent Register.
