Interface to German Register and Publication Data

DPMAconnect is based on DPMAregister, our register and publication service. DPMAconnect allows you to directly access all official register and publication data online, through an interface, from DPMAregister in an automated and comfortable way. You can use the data obtained for internal or commercial purposes, for example, for legal status monitoring or for integration into online or offline databases. The query options correspond to the expert search under DPMAregister . Here you find an overview of the data available under DPMAregister.

Scope and availability of data

DPMAconnect allows you to access all register data of the following IP rights:

  • patents and utility models
  • trade marks

It is planned to provide designs data as well.

We update the register data daily, the publication data weekly (for patents and utility models usually every Thursday, and for trade marks and designs usually every Friday). You can request all data any time through the interface.

Technical requirements

The interface to DPMAconnect is based on the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and enables you to create your own client implementation.
Following the conclusion of an agreement, we will create an account for you with a username and a password of your choice. You will find all information necessary for client implementation zip- Datei here.


DPMAconnect is available at no cost.


The DPMA can neither guarantee uninterrupted access via the interface nor the permanent availability of the data of DPMAregister.

Contractual agreement
