Description of the system
WIPO CASE provides a platform to share information with regards to search and examination reports among participating local intellectual property (IP) offices.
The objective of WIPO CASE is to improve the quality and efficiency of the patent search and examination process done at local and regional patent offices.
Time taken for examination work can be reduced and quality of search results can be improved by sharing information.
The local or regional patent office can carry out further search and examination work if deemed necessary after analyzing existing information of any equivalent filing at another participating patent office.
On 24th March 2015, a new version of the case portal with additional functionality was made available. This URL provides the initial specification.
All project related documentation are available here.
WIPO CASE infrastructure will be migrated to cloud-hosting in the second half of 2023. In this context, a new REST api will be made available to provide or access office data on the fly.
Details of the new CASE api specification is available through this link.
Monthly statistics are going to be published here: WIPO CASE Statistics
