The EPO gathers legal status information from over 40 countries around the world in its INPADOC worldwide legal status database. You can access INPADOC via Espacenet. In this online seminar we will explore the background and coverage of INPADOC. We will look at examples of patent applications and their legal status history, and find out about the latest additions to the database. Last but not least, we will identify some of the pitfalls when using legal status data and how to avoid them.

Online training


The EPO offers online seminars in conjunction with WebEx, so initially some WebEx software will be installed on your computer. If this is not allowed due to different settings you can also run a temporary application.

To make full use of the online seminar  we recommend the use of WebEx certified headsets.
