Patent Searches at European National Offices

According to Managing Intellectual property on August 9, 2006:

From September 1 the EPO will no longer accept search work other than standard
patentability searches, although it has promised to complete work that it has
already started. Instead, 14 national offices, including Austria, Hungary, the
Czech Republic and Portugal will offer a range of additional search services.
Some, such as Bulgaria, will provide standard and special searches in particular
technical fields
. Others, such as Denmark, will offer extra services including
monitoring competitors’ patenting activities.
Please send me your coments on any search work that you might have received from these sources.
