ECLI is a human-readable and machine-processable code that can be assigned to decisions from any national or European court. It is a unique identifier that can be used to search six million decisions from a multitude of jurisdictions across Europe via the European e-Justice Portal. The EPO offers a dedicated sitemap referencing all EPO board of appeal decisions.
The sitemap for EPO board of appeal decisions is updated daily. It can be downloaded free-of-charge.
