SPIF – launching Standard Patent Identification

Share this page:

Cipher is pleased to be working alongside Richardson Oliver Insights, Cipher, Unified Patents, IAM, OIN and RPX on the creation of SPIF, a new, free-to-access tool that will make patent management and transfers more efficient.  This is a not for profit project aimed at bringing transparency to patent data.

SPIF (standardised patent identification) is a non-partisan, open standard, human readable solution for uniquely identifying patent assets that is consistent with existing formats.

SPIF moves the burden of accurately identifying patents from the consumers of patent lists to the producers of patent lists i.e. the patent owner. It works because those that create the lists are best situated to make sure they are correct.

Join the growing number of supporting members, such as AoN, Facebook, Shopify, Dropbox and many more.  Cipher would like to encourage all patent owning organisations to sign up to SPIF:
