ePCT Portal


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. New international applications are also prepared and filed in ePCT private services.
