Kazakhstan Drafts Two New IP Laws

Jan 20 2011 - 10:44

On December 30, 2010, the drafts for two new laws have been submitted to the Kazakh parliament for adoption — the Law on Ratification of the Patent Law Treaty (PLT) and the Law on Introducing Amendments to Intellectual Property Legislation.

The PLT is designed to harmonize and streamline formal procedures set by national or regional patent offices for the filing and maintenance of patents.

The amendments to IP legislation aim to speed up the industrial property application process and bring the Kazakh IP legislation in line with international standards.
