Changes to IP System

On January 28, 2021, the President of Uzbekistan issued the Resolution “On Measures to Improve the Intellectual Property Protection System”, introducing numerous changes in the field of intellectual property.

From April 1, 2021, the restriction on the registration of trademarks and service marks exclusively in the name of legal entities and natural persons carrying out entrepreneurial activities is abolished. All legal entities and natural persons are entitled to register their trademarks and service marks now.

In addition, an accelerated examination was introduced, which shortens the registration periods for intellectual property rights objects.

Further, exporters whose share of exports exceeds 60% of total turnover, as well as entrepreneurs active in the field of agriculture and handicrafts, are exempt from paying official fees.
