Data supply services of the DPMA

Supply of data

The German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) has the duty to grant, register, administer and publish IP rights (patents, trade marks, utility models and designs). Publications are made by the DPMA via its Internet services DPMAregister and DEPATISnet .

Against payment of the cost for the provision of the data (marginal cost), the data of those publications may also be supplied by the DPMA to third parties on the basis of an agreement stipulating the terms of use. The DPMA takes into account data protection but also publishes personal data because it has the statutory duty to do so.

An overview of the current data recipients is available in the list of IP data recipients.

With these data, it is, for example, possible to create your own IP data base. The DPMA facilitates and promotes the distribution and use of German IP information via the integration of IP rights data into such systems and services.

We offer the following options to receive data:

The supply of any data shall be based on an agreement. Please fill in this agreement including the corresponding annex and send it in duplicate to:

Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt
Referat 2.1.2 - Kundenservice
80297 München
