|IPC-CPC-FI experimental viewer for patent classifications and possible applications - Mr. Attila Törcsvári|
Mr. Attila Törcsvári, Managing Director, Arcanum Development, Budapest, Hungary
Arcanum Development carried out an internal research to check the feasibility of conversion of CPC scheme to WIPO-compatible XML format for the purpose of supporting IPC revision work and answering incoming requests from IP offices. The scheme of the CPC publication was converted to the extended version of the WIPO IPC scheme DTD. An experimental viewer is developed that allows parallel browsing of IPC and CPC, marking elements linked by the IPC-CPC concordance table. The technical possibility of retrieval of the respective part of FI will be also shown. Possible uses of the CPC data are presented, such as conversion to Word documents for the e-forum, conversion to Claims/RIPCIS amendment.
