Event Overview

MyEPO Portfolio is a secure, web-based online service for parties to proceedings before the EPO that provides an advanced approach to working with the EPO on portfolios of applications.

You can:
• View your applications and documents
• Receive EPO Mailbox communications
• Perform procedural actions in reply to EPO Mailbox communications
• Administer your EPO Mailbox, portfolio access and users
• Set-up email alerts for new communications, tasks or deadlines

Together with Online Filing 2.0 and Central Fee Payment, our new “MyEPO” suite covers every aspect of the entire EP and PCT patent procedure, making digital interactions easier and providing enhanced guidance throughout your customer journey with the EPO.

The improved and fully operational EPO Mailbox in MyEPO Portfolio replaces the old Mailbox tool which will be decommissioned in June 2024.

During this seminar, you will learn more about the features and benefits of MyEPO Portfolio as well as receive an overview of upcoming new features.
