1 IPC in PATENTSCOPE August 2013 Sandrine Ammann Marketing & Communications Officer

2 Today Focus on the IPC in the PATENTSCOPE search system: Presentation of the IPC IPC in action Q & A session

3 What is IPC? International Patent Classification Codes are assigned in order to classify technical subject matter, mainly patent literature

4 4 What is classified? ► 2 types of information 1. Invention information: Technical information worth granting a patent 2. Additional information: Supplementary non-invention information the classifier/examiner considers interesting > discretionary classification > obligatory classification

5 Example 5 A metal rod wine rack (Training Example:M5) 1.Invention Information A wine rack which is easily dismantled (claim) 2.Additional Information A rigid wine rack made of “wire” Int. Cl. A47B 73/00 ( ) A47B 47/02 ( ) A47B 55/02 ( )

6 The IPC serves as a instrument for the orderly arrangement of patent documents in order to facilitate access to the technological and legal information contained therein; basis for selective dissemination of information to all users of patent information; basis for investigating the state of the art in given fields of technology; basis for the preparation of industrial property statistics which in turn permit the assessment of technological development in various areas.

7 How does it work? Tree type hierarchical structure

8 8  70,000 entries  Each place/entry (Section, Class, Subclass, Group) is characterized by a symbol and a title Symbol = succession of upper case letters and numbers Title = phrase describing the technical content (scope) of the place Symbols and Titles

9 Tree type hierarchical structure Classes Subclasses Groups 70,000 Groups Subclasses 640 Subclasses Classes 129 Classes Sections 8 Subclasses Groups

10 IPC layout: SECTIONS 1A HUMAN NECESSITIES 2B PERFORMING OPERATIONS; TRANSPORTING 3C CHEMISTRY; METALLURGY 4D TEXTILES; PAPER 5E FIXED CONSTRUCTIONS 6F MECHANICAL ENGINEERING; LIGHTING; HEATING; WEAPONS; BLASTING 7G PHYSICS 8H ELECTRICITY

11 IPC layout: SUBSECTIONS AHUMAN NECESSITIES AGRICULTURE FOODSTUFFS; TOBACCO PERSONAL OR DOMESTIC ARTICLES HEALTH; LIFE SAVINGS; AMUSEMENT

12 Tree type hierarchical structure Classes Subclasses Groups 70,000 Groups Subclasses 640 Subclasses Classes 129 Classes Sections 8 Subclasses Groups

13 IPC layout: CLASS AHUMAN NECESSITIES Class = second hierarchical level Class symbol: 2 digit number Class title: indication of the content of the class

14 Tree type hierarchical structure Classes Subclasses Groups 70,000 Groups Subclasses 640 Subclasses Classes 129 Classes Sections 8 Subclasses Groups

15 IPC layout: SUBCLASS Subclass = 3rd hierarchical level Subclass symbol: capital letter Subclass title: indicates content of subsclass

16 Tree type hierarchical structure Classes Subclasses Groups 70,000 Groups Subclasses 640 Subclasses Classes 129 Classes Sections 8 Subclasses Groups

17 17 IPC group symbols A23G 9/ Main groupxxx/00 xxx= 1 to 999 A23G 9/ Subgroupxxx/yy (yy ≠ 00) xxx/yyyyyy ► Two types of groups: Main groups Subgroups of main groups

18 18 IPC group symbols A23G 9/02 ► complete group symbol; consists of different components A Section (A, B,... H) A Class (any 2 digits) A23G Subclass (any letter) A23G 9/ Group Subgroup part Main group part

20 Guide to the IPC The official Guide to the IPC provides comprehensive information on the IPC. It is available for download on the WIPO website of the IPC at:

21 Why is it useful? Primary purpose: effective search tool for the retrieval of patent information: ordering patent documents (similar technical content) searching patent literature Other purposes: selective dissemination of information investigation of the state of the art preparation of industrial property statistics

22 Summary of the advantages of using IPC Language independent Terminology / ”jargon” independent Standardized application to documents (by experts of patent offices) Available for (old) patent documents where no full text of claims / description is available Concept search

23 IPC in PATENTSCOPE Statistics in the Browse by week option Search IPC with simple, advanced, field combination IPC in the result list

24 Statistics in the Browse by week Beta version Idea: Show global trends Main/new actors
