Search services The PATLIB centre carries out IP searches for the public. This service may range from relatively basic bibliographic searches (e.g. for a patent number, an applicant's or inventor's name, or the legal status of an application) to highly sophisticated searches concerning technical areas (state-of-the-art, novelty and infringement searches). Explanatory information, comments and interpretations of the search results may be provided with the search reports.
Provision of intellectual property documentation The PATLIB centre provides copies of IP documents (paper and electronic documents)
Helpdesk services The PATLIB centre provides information on IP procedures, different kinds of IP rights, the requirements for filing an IP application, fees, search possibilities, etc. Legal advice is not included in this service.
IP monitoring services The PATLIB centre provides regular (e.g. weekly, monthly, quarterly) information on newly published IP rights or changes of their legal status. For patents and utility models, the monitoring can be based on IPC (International Patent Classification) profiles and/or competitor names.
