Download software for filing with the EPO

New customers are kindly requested to order the full Online Filing client software package, consisting of a smart card, smart card reader, the Gemalto software and the online filing software, by using our enrolment form. Please note that all of the components listed are required to perform online filing successfully.

Once you have received the full Online Filing client software (including the smart card reader software) you will be able to process a number of patches and maintenance updates via the Live Update mechanism built into your client. Alternatively, you can download them from this page (this does not apply to the Gemalto/GemSAFE software). The Live Update function only works for national plug-ins if the countries for which you want to download an update have first been selected. Completely new Online Filing versions will not be available via the Live Update functionality and will have to be downloaded from this page, which also contains a complete collection of the latest software updates.

Special note for users who wish to perform filing via the PMS gateway integrated in version 5 of the Online Filing software: Please make sure that the files generated by your PMS can be read and processed by the EPO before you perform filing in production mode. Contact the EPO for further details before you perform filing in production mode. More information on the PMS interface.
