US and Israel Patent Offices Announce ILPO’s Participation in the Cooperative Patent Classification System

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Israel Ministry of Justice unit, the Israel Patent Office (ILPO) have announced ILPO’s participation in the Cooperative Classification Patent (CPC) system.

The ILPO will classify its newly filed Israel national stage patent documents into the CPC thereby expanding CPC’s coverage of patent documents throughout the world and enabling Israel documents to be searched alongside other countries.
