Global Dossier postcard

Global Dossier is a set of business services that provides IP stakeholders free, secure, one-stop access to the dossier information of all applications that comprise a family and that have been filed in participating IP offices. It represents a significant move towards technical harmonization by enabling the exchange of patent information between foreign patent offices, patent examiners, and the public worldwide. 

  • Free, real-time access to patent family application information from participating offices in a single location
  • Machine translations of foreign IP5 patent documents
  • Improved ease of filing internationally
  • Time and cost savings using new efficiencies and worksharing opportunities
  • Improved worldwide patent quality, resulting in higher value patents
