How can I use the European Patent Register?

You can use the Register to:

  • find out what stage the European patent application has reached in the grant procedure
  • find out if an application has been granted or is intended to be granted
  • check whether oppositions have been filed
  • read correspondence between the EPO and a patent applicant and/or attorney
  • access patent family and legal status information
  • monitor applications by means of the Register Alert service
  • check the legal status of patents in the national phase (post grant) in the Federated Register service
  • view the file wrapper of IP5 members and others in the Global Dossier (if available)
  • download data in WIPO/ST36 standard
  • download selected documents in the All documents view (file inspection)
