Japan: JPO offers new platform for searching foreign patents - FOPSIER

Leider ist diese Seite derzeit nicht in deutscher Sprache verfügbar.

Following the recent launch of the J-PlatPat database, the Japan Patent Office (JPO) launched another search system on 7 August 2015. The "Foreign Patent Information Service" (FOPSIER) offers domestic users the possibility to search foreign patent information in Japanese language, free-of-charge. The source also offers a machine translation into Japanese.

While J-PlatPat includes patent information from Europe, the United States, China, Korea, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Switzerland and Canada, FOPSIER allows searches in patent information from jurisdictions that are not available via J-PlatPat. Currently, the source includes patent and utility model documents from Russia, Australia and Chinese Taipei; data from Singapore and the Philippines will be added soon. The JPO will gradually increase the range of information available via this new platform.

Further details and annotated screenshots of the new platform can be found on the website of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).
