Eurasian Industrial Design Applications Started

On June 1, 2021, the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO) started accepting Eurasian industrial design applications when the Eurasian design protection system became operational under the Protocol on the Protection of Industrial Designs to the Eurasian Patent Convention. Applicants can now obtain simultaneous protection within the territory of the states of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, where the Protocol entered into force.

The three remaining EAPO member states Belarus, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan have yet to complete their ratification procedures. According to Article 22 of the Protocol, Eurasian design patents will have legal effect in the EAPO member states in which the Protocol was in force on the application filing date.
