The EPO is looking for volunteers from outside the EPC states to test their new MyEPO Portfolio service.
This will particularly benefit those attorneys who use the EPO as the ISA and IPEA, as it will enable delivery of the various communications by electronic means (EPO Mailbox) rather than regular postal mail, making your practice better.
This expansion of the EPO’s electronic services will also help to further reduce the EPO’s paper usage, in line with its and FICPI’s strategic goals.
The call for pilot participants to register can be found here: https://www.epo.org/applying/online-services/improving/myepo-portfolio-call-for-participants.html and more information about MyEPO Portfolio can be found here: https://www.epo.org/applying/online-services/myepo.html
We encourage our members to participate and to provide feedback to the EPO (as well as FICPI’s CET 4 - European Patents).
