Swedish Patent Database

PRV's online service Swedish Patent Database is a completely free search service with a user-friendly interface. No login is required.
The Swedish Patent Database covers:

  • Swedish patents
  • Swedish public patent applications
  • European patents (EP patents) validated in Sweden
  • EP applications published under §88 of the Patents Act
  • Granted EP patents where Sweden is designated, meaning the applicant has clearly requested that the patent be made valid in Sweden. (Searchable in the database for six months from EPO’s grant date.)
  • Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs) and extensions to SPCs for patents

The patent database includes all the information and documents which are in PRV's archives, spanning from 1885 until the present day. For older patent material, the information may be limited.
