WIPO Digital Access Service for Priority Documents

European Patent Office

On 1 November 2018, the European Patent Office (EPO) started participating in the WIPO Digital Access Service for Priority Documents (DAS) as both a depositing Office and an accessing Office.  However, for the time being, DAS is available at the EPO only for European patent applications and for international applications entering the European phase before the EPO as designated or elected Office.  Note that while DAS is not currently available for international applications, the EPO intends to implement DAS in respect of international applications in the near future.
