The CPC International project will be launched in the week-end of 24-25 August 2019. The CPC International project will enable all CPC allocations to be stored at simple patent family level, whether they are provided by the EPO, USPTO, or any other CPC office or organisation. A new feature will be that offices endorsing a particular CPC allocation will be visible and searchable in the various classification databases made available by the EPO and USPTO.
