A tele-search is an assisted patent search carried out at one of our partner locations. You’re connected to the patent expert at the IPI via teleconference from this location.
You can find all information on assisted patent searches on the following pages:
We will carry out the search at the partner location in your presence only. You will receive the search report and any other documents at the end of the search by email. In all other respects, the terms concerning services are applicable.
The tele-search takes place via Skype for Business. The IPI assumes no responsibility for the security of data when transmitting data using the desktop-sharing platform.
Please note that your personal presence at the IPI during the search has advantages. The search is also carried out more efficiently. We therefore recommend that you come to Bern for the search if at all possible.
