Technological information


Patents published worldwide are a valuable source of scientific, technical and commercial information. Access this information and the wide range of services offered by the SPTO to facilitate consultation.


What is patent information?

Patent information comprises all information that has been published in patent documents or is part of procedure files. This information can be of a technical, legal or commercial nature. The standardised format of patent documents makes them very easy to consult and the information contained in them is often unique because it is not reproduced in any other type of publication.
