INFORMATION FROM THE EPO
Register of European Patents on-line: further user possibilities
From December 1997 a new service is available to users of the on-line EPIDOS Register at the European Patent Office. Holders of deposit accounts provided by the European Patent Office can now obtain up-to-date information on the balance of their deposit account from this on-line service.
In order to gain access to this service, a written request has to be filed at the European Patent Office, Vienna sub-office (address: European Patent Office, EPIDOS Register helpdesk, attn. Mrs Elena Sereix, Schottenfeldgasse 29, A-1072 Vienna; fax (+43-1) 521 26 32 92; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
This request should indicate:
- the user identification,
- the EPO deposit account number, and
- an additional password if such protection is required (eg where the Register is used by several persons under the same user identification).
Deposit account holders, who do not yet have access to the EPIDOS Register on-line, may obtain a one-month-free trial. Requests should be sent to the address indicated above.
