Busan, Korea, 5 June 2014 - The European Patent Office and
the State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China announced the launch of a new EPO service, called the Global Dossier, that
displays European and Chinese dossier content on a family of patent applications
(applications for the same invention filed at multiple offices).
This is probably the first of many joint services comoing out of the Global Dossier Task Force created at the 5th IP5 Heads Meeting in June 2012. This Task Force comprises not only the IP5 offices, but also industry representatives from these jurisdictions (see http://www.fiveipoffices.org/activities/globaldossier.html)
