General Coordination Division,
Japan Patent Office

Japan Patent Office (JPO) is working to improve the functions of Japan Platform for Patent Information (J-PlatPat) in order to respond to more sophisticated and diverse user needs for IP information.

Now, in order to enhance convenience more, JPO has made the function improvements, by which information update is expedited, search-targeted document range is expanded, and so on. In addition, the user interface has been renewed so that even those who had no chance to come in contact with IP information can use J-PlatPat smoothly.

Release date/time of the new function

9:00 AM of May 7, 2019

Functions to be improved

By the renewal of the user interface, not only J-PlatPat users but also even those who had no chance to come in contact with IP information can enjoy J-PlatPat operation more smoothly.

  • J-PlatPat Top page

Functions to be improved are mainly as follows:

  • Shortenings of the time lag (reflection on Examination/Trial and Appeal status information is expedited).
  • Expansion of the search-targeted document range.
  • Search of Chinese/Korean patent/utility model in Japanese becomes available.
  • Search of the right-extinguished trademark (expired or refused trademark) becomes available.
  • Improvement of Japanese to English machine translation.

Other than above, additions/improvements of a variety of functions will be done to enhance user-friendliness. For details, please refer to “Function improvements of Patent Information Platform” (posted on July 10, 2018. Japanese only).

Chinese and Korean publication translation/search system

As one of J-PlatPat function improvements, Chinese and Korean patent/utility model publication data, which has been provided by “Chinese and Korean Publication Translation/Search System” (available in Japanese version only) up to now is migrated into J-PlatPat and can be searched in Japanese through “Patent & Utility Model Search” menu. (Please refer to “About functions to be improved” mentioned above). Due to this improvement, current “Chinese and Korean Publication Translation/Search System” service will be terminated on June 28 (Fri), 2019.
