Main content:

Search and expert opinions on the state of the Art

You are working on an innovation? So you may need search on the state of the art. We can do that for you.

What do you need to give us?

  • a detailed description of your technical item
  • a technical drawing if available

The result is a search report which gives you an overview of the prior art.

The search report you will receive is a list of relevant non-patent- and patent-literature.

You can submit the request for a search online or with a conventional RE 1a application form. No registration, citizen card or similar is required for an online application.

An expert opinion is a detailed written statement on the patentability of your technical invention. If you want an expert opinion, you already need claims.

Claim

Claims are the heartpiece of a patent application: The claims define, in technical terms, the extent, i.e. the scope, of the protection conferred by a patent, or the protection sought in a patent application.

You can submit the request for an expert opinion online or with a conventional RE 1b application form. No registration, citizen card or similar is required for an online application.
