About EPO/OPS authentication
Overview
The EPO has introduced, starting November 2013 with OPS version 3.1, an authentication procedure for accessing OPS data based on the Fair use charter. Registered OPS users are granted free access to volumes of data up 2.5 GB per week. Registered OPS users willing to pay for more substantial volumes of data can apply for access to higher volumes of data. Non-registered users only receive a small allocation of data for very low volume usage and download speed. Upon submission of registration details and approval of the registration request by the EPO, the EPO credentials ('Consumer Key' and 'Consumer Secret Key') will be generated. These credentials can be used by 'poxoq for patents' (version 1.3.1 or higher).
