EBD files (weekly download) - free of charge
Details about EBD files
- The EBD pages make it possible to download one or several weeks EP patent bibliographic data in XML (see below).
- This is text data only and the bibliographic data has the same data content as the weekly EPO Patent Bulletin.
- These files are complex and you will need a good understanding of EPO patent data to process them. Please refer to the information pages.
- These files can be quite large and may take some time to download - even though they are 'zip' files.
