The International Patent Classification (IPC) and Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) systems are powerful hierarchies that categorize patents into specific technological domains. As new areas of innovation emerge and technologies evolve, these systems are periodically revised to reflect these developments. Therefore, it is critical to keep your search strategies and alerts updated as new classification symbols are introduced or changes are made.
