Patent family data
Patent family data

Artificial- We have 4 different family types using a unique algorithm so you can view families as you desire
The domestic family consists of all subsequent publications of the same application within the same authority, i.e. the documents all share the same application number.
The main family consists of a set of patent documents filed in multiple countries to protect a single invention by a common inventor(s) and an exact match of priority data (INID 30). This family type is the equivalent to the Simple Patent Family according to the EPO definition.
Complete- "The complete family consists of a set of patent documents filed in multiple countries that are directly or indirectly linked to one root document based on priorities (as defined under INID 30).
The extended family consists of a set of patent documents filed in multiple countries that are directly or indirectly linked to one root document where the linking is beyond priority numbers and includes documents such as a continuation-in-part, divisional or provisional. This family is our equivalent of the EPO's Inpadoc family.
INPADOC: Available in TotalPatent One via a link to the EPO site at the document level
