China: English interface of “Patent Search and Analysis Platform” relaunched

Following the recent relaunch of the Chinese interface of its "Patent Search and Analysis Platform" (see this earlier Update), the State Intellectual Property Office of China (SIPO) released new versions of the corresponding foreign language interfaces in September 2016. The changes included mainly a system upgrade and a more user-friendly interface, but did not introduce any significant new functionalities.

To reflect these recent changes, all step-by-step search guides with instructions for using the English interface of this database have been updated. For these and other search guides, please visit the "Searching in databases" section on the EPO's virtual helpdesk on Asian patent information.
