On October 14, 2010, the Kazakhstan Ministry of Justice issued Order No. 279 regulating the protection of unpublished works, specifically the delivery, acceptance and storage of unpublished manuscripts.

According to the paragraph 3 of the Order, the Order entered into force ten calendar days after its first publication, which was on January 12, 2011 in the national newspaper Kazakhstanskaya Pravda.

The new regulations were drafted in accordance with the Kazakhstan Law on Copyright and Related Rights and aim to prevent misuse and misappropriation of unpublished works.

The justice ministry has appointed the Committee for Intellectual Property Rights as the authority responsible for protection of unpublished works.
