reasons for h armonization
Reasons for Harmonization
  • Increase in documents to be classified
    • > 500,000 (EPO: ECLA)

> 500,000 (JPO: FI)

> 300,000 (USPTO: USPC) docs / year

- Further increase expected

  • Establish a well-structured documentation
    • Harmonize internal schemes
    • Facilitate access to TOs’ documents with common schemes
    • Enhance the availability of TOs’ documents
    • Further expand (to be IPC Advanced Level)
  • Share reclassification work
  • Reduce classification effort (for EP)
