Common Citation Document

The Common Citation Document (CCD) application aims to provide single-point access to citation data for the patent applications of the five IP offices (IP5).

It consolidates the prior art cited by all participating offices for the family members of a patent application, thus enabling the search results for the same invention produced by several offices to be viewed on a single page.
