Global Dossier Public Access provides secure, online access to the file histories of related applications from participating IP Offices. This includes all international application filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) as well as patent applications from World Intellectual Property Organization-Centralized Access to Search and Examination (WIPO-CASE) participating offices. By using this service, examiners will be able to view Office Actions (along with machine translations), citations, and classification data for those applications. This service also provides Office Action Indicators to help examiners identify applications that contain office actions, a Collections View for saving documents and applications for review later on in the session, and the ability to download the documents in an application. See for additional information regarding WIPO-CASE.
