Bulk Data Products

We disseminate public patent and trademark pre-packaged or user-customized bulk data products.

Bulk data refers to putting all static data into a file or set of files, so that all of the data can be acquired with downloads.

Bulk Data Storage System (Released 10/1/15)
BDSS provides a single repository for raw public bulk data. BDSS also has research data from the Office of the Chief Economist, including PatentsView. The files are updated on a regular or ongoing basis.

Patent Examination Data System (Version 2.0.0 Released 3/4/21)
Patent Examination Data System allows customers to search, display and download multiple records of USPTO patent application, status, transaction history, patent term adjustment, address and attorney/agent, continuity data, foreign priority data, and assignments. You can now also see Content Management System (CMS) data (formerly Image File Wrapper (IFW) data).

You can find an individual patent or trademark without using bulk data. To search patents, visit: https://www.uspto.gov/patents-application-process/search-patents. To search trademarks, visit: https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database.
