Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) Added to USPATOLD on STN®

March  22nd,   2013

Effective March 24, 2013, STN now includes Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) search and display features, and a CPC thesaurus in USPATOLD. USPATOLD contains full-text and classifications of published U.S. patents issued between 1790-1975.

The addition of CPC data improves classification searching of U.S. patents for more than 50,000 records in USPATOLD lacking IPC data.

New CPC search fields include:

Description

/CPC

- CPC codes applied for inventive aspects in a patent

CPC.TAB
