ESPACE Bulletin is a database that contains bibliographic and legal status data on European applications and granted patents from 1978 to date.
According to the September 2010 edition of the European Patent Office's Patent Information News
- ESPACE Bulletin will soon be redesigned into a single-volume online database, with additional features to make it even more accessible to users. Available online and updated weekly, ESPACE Bulletin provides access to bibliographic and procedural information on all published European patent applications and granted European patents. It is the up-to-date electronic version of the entire collection of the European Patent Bulletin paper-form books.
- It contains bibliographic data and information relating to the examination and opposition procedure for all these documents, from the first publication until the end of the procedure before the EPO.
- With more than 70 search criteria, the diversity and richness of the information in ESPACE Bulletin is ideal for creating specific data sets that can be analysed further.
Trial subscriptions are available on a limited time basis from the EPO.
ESPACE Bulletin can be used in conjunction with the European Patent Register (which focuses more on examination, opposition, and appeal data).
