Cooperative Patent Classification System

The USPTO and EPO have released the new Cooperative Patent Classification system ahead of the January 1, 2013 implementation date.  (The USPTO will phase in the CPC over the next couple of years.)  Details are available at the CPC website.  Documentation includes the entire CPC scheme, an initial set of definitions and CPC concordances.

There’s also the inaugural issue of the CPC News newsletter.

The EPO has started to integrate some of the USPTO cross-reference art collections and digest into Espacenet.
