No additional patent documents for Unitary Patents  
Please note that no additional documents beyond the European patent specification published by the EPO under the EPC will be specially published for a Unitary Patent. However, Unitary Patent proprietors will be sent a certificate equivalent to the "certificate for a European patent" under Rule 74 EPC once unitary effect has been registered. Moreover, Unitary Patents will be assigned a specific code in the Register for Unitary Patent protection and in the data sets provided by the EPO, making it easier to identify them through the EPO's patent information products and services, e.g. European Publication Server, Espacenet and Global Patent Index.
