I´m new in research in patent classificacions and need to get the CCL: Current US Classification, CPC: Current CPC Classification, CPCL:Current CPC Classification Class and ICL: International Classification. of various patent numbers i used to get them from see the forest, but found out that they had a lot of errors, furthermore I can´t find the bulk database for that information, the anwers that i looked up in this page are good but the links no longer work. Can anyone give me a way to solve this problem ?

  • Can you please explain “I used to get them from see the forest”?

  • It is a patent analytic site with an odd name see-the-forest.com/G4/Main.act

  • You posted a follow up question as an answer. That isn’t how this site works. New questions need to be posted as questions.

The Lens provides classification codes as fields. You can download the results of a search to various formats including CSV and JSON files. I just tested it and got the following column headers related to classifications:

CPC Classifications,IPCR Classifications,US Classifications

There is also an API for bulk queries although that, I believe is not free.

  • The OP will not have sufficient rep points to see your comment suggesting re-posting as a new question since it is a comment to a answer that is hidden from the OP.
