Information on EPO data

The EPO provides users with high-quality online patent data from more than 80 different countries. We monitor the three main patent data streams (bibliographic, facsimile images and full text) at key stages in their life cycles to ensure that they are complete, consistent, accurate and up to date. 

Publication day

The publication day for European patent applications and patent specifications is Wednesday, irrespective of whether this day is a public holiday or not.
