The number search offers two main options for number input: 

  1. Simplified number search: Numbers can be typed or copy-pasted separated by a space, a comma, a semi-colon, or a paragraph break. If no country code is entered, the system will retrieve every matching patent number regardless of the patent office.  

Five options are available in the dropdown menu: publication number, application number, priority number, application or priority number, and any patent number. 


When the option “Smart number search” is selected, the user has the chance to preview the results via the “Results summary” window and decide which numbers to include in the final hitlist by checking/unchecking the respective boxes

  

  1. Upload file: Import numbers by uploading a file from your computer, four document types are supported: TXT, CSV, XLS and XLSX.
