Korea: direct links to file wrapper now available in KIPRIS

The Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) now includes direct links from events in the legal status overview to related documents in the file wrapper in KIPO's "One Portal Dossier" (OPD) service. (KIPO's OPD corresponds to the EPO's "Global Dossier"). For example, when clicking on the link next to the legal status event "decision of refusal", a PDF version of the related document in the file wrapper can be accessed. Via these links, users can easily retrieve further information about the legal status event (e.g. reasons for the refusal decision) via a single click.

So far, these direct links are only available on the Korean language interface of KIPRIS. A detailed search guide on how to retrieve Korean file wrapper information is available in the "Searching in databases" section on the EPO's Asian patent information webpages.
