Under Goal 2 of the Strategic Plan 2023 the EPO is working towards a digital transformation that will deliver new online tools to better address user needs. Key Initiative 3 (Develop a new online user engagement) and Key Initiative 5 (Continue to digitalise and modernise Corporate Services) aim at improving online services to our users.

Help us improve our services

A guiding principle of this work will be user consultation. If you would like us to invite you to provide input or feedback or take part in tests and pilot projects, please fill in the following form.

MyEPO Portfolio

MyEPO Portfolio is a secure, web-based online service for parties to proceedings before the EPO that provides a fresh approach to working with the EPO on portfolios of applications and patents.

Users can view their application portfolios, documents in the digital file, receive EPO Mailbox communications, and perform procedural acts in response to communications from the EPO. It has been designed to improve the exchange of digital information, simplify procedures, and enable more direct interaction with EPO examiners on files.

We will be extending MyEPO Portfolio with new features progressively between now and mid-2023.

The EPO is looking for volunteers to actively participate in a second pilot phase during which we will trial new features of MyEPO Portfolio.

If you are interested in participating in this pilot phase, please select Volunteer above. Feedback sessions will be conducted via email, interviews or online group working sessions.

Please note: When gathering user feedback, we will try to ensure a fair balance of users in terms of their profile, company size, location and level of expertise. So, even if we do not contact you immediately, we will save your details and get back to you when we need your support.
