Since January 2014 you can easily access the legal status and procedural data of European patents validated in Turkey and Italy. Just one click from the "legal status" section of the European Patent Register, and you are there. That brings the number of countries that support deep linking to 27 (Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom).
The EPO is working to get even more national registers deep-linked in this way, so watch this space!
