The UKIPO has launched an online document inspection service for its recent patent files.

The service, called Ipsum, allows anyone to view documents sent by the UKIPO (such as search reports and examination reports), as well as documents received by the UKIPO (such as the responses filed to examination reports).

Some documents are not available online, although they can still be cheaply obtained via an official file inspection request. The database gives some status and bibliographic information, although it is not as comprehensive as the online register which is still the best source of status information.
