If you are searching for databases and tools to help you prepare your application, have a look at the modules on the PatXML and BiSSAP software. Also, watch the tutorials on these topics to find out how you can file your application and pay your fees online.
PatXML software helps you draft your patent documents in Microsoft Word by creating a template with built-in EPC rules. Documents can then be printed and filed in paper form, or converted to PDF with a button or saved as XML (eXtensible Markup Language) to allow you to take advantage of reduced online filing fees, thus giving you a choice of filing formats.
BiSSAP (Biological Sequence Submission Application for Patents) has been designed to enable applicants to prepare sequence listings for filing in a standardised format.
