The European Patent Register is the most complete and up-to-date source of publicly available procedural information on European patent applications as they pass through each stage of the granting process. This free online service contains procedural information on all European patent applications from the moment they are published. It includes links to the patent registers of many of the EPO member states, showing the status of European patents after grant, when the national patent offices take over responsibility for them.


The Federated Register provides a single point of access to reliable post‑grant bibliographic and legal status information on European patents. It is available free of charge.
