Benefits of MyEPO Portfolio​

MyEPO Portfolio provides improved access and procedural guidance, direct interaction with the EPO on files, and enables the exchange of digital information.​

Improved access​

MyEPO Portfolio provides an interface that is user-friendly, intuitive and easy to access.​

It incorporates the functionalities of the legacy Mailbox and My Files services, with useability improvements. It is easier to view documents in the digital file, with access to documents in their original data format, including parts in colour where available.​

Mailbox access is available to international agents and non European parties acting before the EPO under the PCT.​

MyEPO Portfolio replaces the legacy Mailbox, My Files and Administration facility services, which will be decommissioned in June 2024.​

Improved procedural guidance​

MyEPO Portfolio provides you with information about pending actions in reply to a communication from the EPO and the associated deadlines.​

It offers a simplified approach to making procedural submissions. You are guided through the process with procedural information, and plausibility checks and validations help reduce the risk of error.​

Direct interaction with the EPO on files​

MyEPO Portfolio provides you a personal shared area where you can upload, review, edit and annotate documents together with examiners during a live consultation. This real-time interaction increases quality, transparency as well as efficiency.​

Exchange of digital information​

MyEPO Portfolio allows you to download data about your application portfolios, pending tasks and Mailbox communications, including links to the digital file.​

You will be able to upload information when performing procedural acts in reply to a communication from the EPO.​

We are introducing new business-to-business interfaces (APIs) so that users can automate exchange of data between their IP management systems and MyEPO services.​

The first API is now available, allowing you to download documents and data from your Mailbox.
