Welcome to the new version of the Patents Manual. Please note there are changes to the numbering and sequence of the chapters and pages in the manual. You are encouraged to take the time to explore and familiarise yourself with this new structure. Access to the MCD Data

Date Published

There are three different ways to have access to the data in the MCD.

  1. Offices, which have a high use of the MCD or DOCDB, and which have already installed a copy of the database in-house will receive updates to be in line with the master copy on a regular basis (monthly or weekly).  This option is not considered in IP Australia.
  2. The data present in the MCD is also copied in the database EPODOC and is accessible via Espacenet.
  3. Access to the MCD through the IPC database.
