News on USPTO/EPO joint patent classification system

Last week Patently O blogged the news that the USPTO and the EPO are to start working on a common patent classification system – which is hoped to make the work of patent searchers more efficient.  They wrote:

“…the USPTO and EPO [issued] a joint announcement on a directive that they are going to start working together on a joint classification system which both companies will develop and support. The new system will be based on the European ECLA system which is itself an off-shoot of the International Patent Classification system from WIPO and will be co-developed by the two offices going forward.”

You can read the announcements “USPTO and EPO work toward joint classification system” on either the USPTO site, or the EPO site.
