File Description [top]

The INPADOC/Family and Legal Status Database (File 345), is produced by the European Patent Office (EPO) and describes patents issued by 98 countries and patenting organizations. The International Patent Documentation Center (INPADOC) was formed in 1972 with the support of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to provide a centralized bibliographic source for patent documents. INPADOC is now part of the European Patent Documentation System operated by the European Patent Office (EPO).

The DIALOG version of the INPADOC database is unique in that it brings together equivalent patents that share common priorities for a particular invention in a single family record. The 36.3 million patent family records contain information on over 65 million patents and 44 million legal status actions. The newly reloaded version of Inpadoc also includes abstracts and search reports (cited patents and cited literature references) from key patenting offices such as EPO, WIPO, Japan, and the United States. Starting with week 200816, EPO's simple families and IDs, and a representative English abstract, if provided, are also available for browsing.

An Inpadoc patent family record typically contains several kinds of data: the patent table, bibliographic data for each patent, and legal status actions if applicable. The patent table provides an overview of the family members and includes patent country, number, kind and date for each patent in the family, its corresponding local application number and date, and the week in which the patent was originally added to the database. Family priorities contain the application country, number, kind and date.

The bibiliographic data consists of patent title, generally available in one or more languages, patent assignees and inventors, International Patent Classification (IPC) codes including the recent IPCR/8 reclassification, European Classification (ECLA) codes, and and national classification codes such as Japanese FI terms and F terms, and US class codes. For European and PCT patents, designated states are also provided.

Legal status actions are provided for 47 countries and include the patent number, the gazette date announcing the action, the legal status code, the equivalent text description, and the week in which the action was added to the database.

File 253 is available for ONline Training And Practice.

        A method and apparatus for predicting a distillation temperature range 
          of a hydrocarbon-containing compound comprising gasoline and/or 
          naphta. The said hydrocarbon-containing compound is analyzed and 
          specific parameters of interest are determined. The values of said 
          determined parameters of interest are processed in a predetermined 
          mathematical distillation model. From said model the distillation 
          temperature range of said hydrocarbon-containing compound is 
          calculated and data representing the result of said calculation are 
          produced.

    Representative Abstract:  EP 1779879 A1 20070502 (English) 
      A surgical cassette (200) is provided having a fluid pressure sensing 
          chamber (210) with a tubing extension (240') extending through a void 
          (230') in the chamber. The tubing contains at least one port (260') 
          that fluidly communicate(s) with the pressure sensing chamber, being 
          adapted to allow the purging of air from the chamber during initial 
          priming of the cassette, but being sized so that air bubbles entering 
          the tubing extension cannot easily flow into the chamber. The tubing 
          extension further contains a reduced diameter portion (241) that 
          creates a pressure differential upstream and downstream of a flow 
          restrictor (242). The differential pressure creates flow through the 
          chamber under high liquid flow and turbulent liquid flow events.

3 Use the limit /PB to restrict search terms to the information contained in the patent basic, i.e., the first or earliest patent in the family.

4 To search priority applications, use PR= for priority application numbers, or apply /PR to restrict Application Country (AC=), Application Number (AN=) and Application Date (AD=) to priority fields only.

5 Use the S operator to link patent and national application data for a specifc patent.

6 The Company Name field, CO= contains Patent Assignee (PA=) names and Reassignment (RA=) names for searching. Due to structural differences in the fields, RANK CO lists only patent assignee names. Reassignment names can also be searched with LS=.

7 The search report consists of Cited Patents, CT=, and Cited Literature References, RF=. The data searchable in these fields also includes the origin of the citation as a 3-letter code and the citation category as used by EPO and WIPO search reports. The origin of the citatiion code options include: SEA (originates from Search Report), APP (cited by Applicant), EXA (Revealed during examination phase), OPP (revealed during opposition phase), and 115 (Article 115 - observed by 3rd parties).

8 With the introduction of the Reformed International Patent Classification (IPCR/8) on January 1, 2006, the format of the IPC group has increased in length from 3 to 4 digits. For comprehensive retrieval, both forms of the classification codes should be searched, e.g., S IC=H04R-025/00 OR IC=H04R-0025/00 . Some records may contain IPCR/8 codes as well as earlier versions of IPC codes, indicating that an older patent has been reclassified.

9 Each IPCR/8 classification code is also assigned a series of attributes. These include classification level (A - Advanced, C - Core, S - Subclass), value (I - Inventive, N - Non-inventive), position (F - First, L - Later), status (B - Basic, R - Reclassified, V - Various, D - Deleted), version date, action date, source (H - Human, M - Machine, G - Generated), and assigning office. The classification attributes can be searched with the IA= prefix and can be linked to an IPCR/8 classification code (prefixes IC=, ICA=, ICC=) using the S operator and quotes around the classification code, e.g., S IA=F(S)IC="A61K-0031/198".

10 Legal Status Text, LS= is searchable in English only. Additional legal status notes may include assignee names and addresses, effective dates, reference countries, and reference patents.

11 The list of countries for which legal status is provided is listed in the Sources section of the Bluesheet. Since not all records for that country will have legal status, use the /STATUS limit to restrict a search to records containing legal status data.

12 MAPping of patent numbers using MAP PNPB captures just the basic patent in the family. MAP PN is used to capture all patents in a family for cross-file searching. The patent numbers for specific countries can also be MAPped, e.g. MAP PNUS.

13 The Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) was introduced in January 2013. It is structurally similar to the International Patent Classification (IPC), so CPC classes are searched the same way using the CP= prefix. CPC attributes are the same as the IPC attributes with the exception of the Value attribute (I - Inventive, A - Additional), and are searched with the CA= prefix. The (S) operator can be used to link the CPC class codes and their attributes.

14 The Record Type (RT=) term identifies major data fields that might be present in the record, in addition to bibliographic data. The RT= index contains the following entries: Abstract, Cited Refs and Legal Status. If a record contains no bibliographic data, it is assigned the value RT=NOBIBLIO.

15 The latest additions to the family record can be displayed using Alerting formats 15 or 16 . Display codes UB, UE, and UL can also be used to display the latest additions to the family. Not available for File 253.

16 The Japanese classification consists of two types: FI terms are based on the IPC version 4 classification and may contain additional alphanumeric extensions. F terms or part of a matrix classification system developed in Japan - the more general part of an F term is called a theme, and is further qualified by one or more viewpoint codes. For precise searching, use the combined F term; for broader searches, use just the theme (the portion of the code preceding the slash).

17 Beginning with week 200816, new or changed bibliographic data also includes EPO simple families. Patents in a simple family contain identical priorities, so a family record in File 345 may contain multiple simple families. Use EF= to locate specific Simple Family IDs. EF can be used to display all simple families and representative English abstracts, if any, present in Inpadoc family records. Simple family data displays in formats 33, 35, and 39. Note that simple family data may be incomplete or absent in records which have not been updated since week 200816.
