German term or phrase: PAZ
I am translating an Austrian patent file history. Both sides refer to a "Beschriebung PAZ 43455." The boilerplate on the office actions also mentions the attachment of a description PAZ, claims PAZ, etc. Is the PAZ just a copy of the application that both sides mark up and send back and forth? And what exactly does it stand for?

Patent Aktenzeichen
Explanation:
is sometimes use amongst patent people (of which I'm part)...is usually the application number of the patent ...can sometimes also be the publication number...have a look at the document that is being referred to and see if it is an application or a published document...good luck!

translation is therefore: patent application number or patent publication number....sorry...only mentioned the non-abbreviated term...

In view of your remark made above, I would say that patent file number is what you\'re looking for. At the EPO, we also work with differentt numbers: publication, application AND file numbers. The file number, as mentioned, is purely for internal use, but it might just be what is being referred to if you\'re absolutely sure that it is not the application or publication number

Thank you.

agree  Derek Gill Franßen: Yes, "patent file number"... :-)

  -> YES...you're right...forgot about this possibility...file number is strictly "internal" to the patent office...the file contains much more than the patent...had the impression that ref. was made to the patent itself (claims, description, etc...)...
