Archived — Patent Notices - The Canadian Patent Office Record goes online!

The Canadian Patent Office Record is going online! CIPO has undertaken a major redesign of our weekly patent publication to accommodate additional information and improve service to our clients. Starting on April 20, 1999, the Canadian Patent Office Record will be available on the Internet, free of charge. Visit the "Patents" section of CIPO's home page. The publication will be a downloadable file in Adobe Acrobat format. Among other features, the Acrobat Reader, which is available at no cost, allows for searching by keyword.

Starting April 20, 1999, an archive of weekly Canadian Patent Office Records will be built online for instant retrieval. Distribution of printed copies to current subscribers will continue as usual.

Major enhancements to look for include:

  • PCT Information. Bibliographic data on PCT applications entering the National Phase will be provided. In addition to the data already provided for Canadian Laid-Open applications, the PCT application number, publication number and international filing date will be provided.
  • WIPO Standards. Some additional data fields will be provided such as document type code, language code and reissue grant date. Other data fields including dates and countries will be presented in a manner consistent with WIPO standards. An explanation of each INID code used will appear in the Notices Section.
