INPADOC with more current and complete Japanese legal status information

23. October 2019

Since update week 2019/41, the Japanese Patent Office (JPO) has accelerated provision of legal status events by two weeks. New legal event data is now available within two weeks after publication (Gazette date in field /LSD). Additionally, the completeness for all JP legal event codes increased considerably. In the past two weeks the legal status of about 220,000 JP-applications was updated due to legal events with a Gazette date before 2019.
