Which Criteria Are Used To Determine Which Representative Of A Patent Family Is Displayed In The Search Results?

The criteria used to determine which representative for a patent family is based on

  1. The query itself (for example, the relevance of keywords/IPCs/assignees etc.).
  2. The results view grouping criteria (for example, whether one representative per simple, INPADOC or extended family was selected).
  3. The criteria used to choose the representative (for example, if you choose for the representative to be selected based on a specific authority priority).

If you amend any of these criteria, the representative may change for this family.
