The ePCT system offers two distinct types of online services:
- ePCT public services, requiring the creation of a standard WIPO user account, enable the upload of documents, access to documents previously uploaded by the account holder and the use of the third party observation service.
- ePCT private services, requiring additional authentication by uploading a digital certificate to a WIPO user account, provide a full suite of functions to authorized users for international applications filed as 1 January 2009.
As of March 1, 2014, the filing of new international applications using ePCT-Filing is available for more receiving Offices, in addition to RO/IB.
