Jul 25 2011 - 12:51

On May 24, 2011, Uzbekistan’s president signed a decree establishing the Agency for Intellectual Property of Uzbekistan. The cabinet of ministers signed a detailed enactment on June 8, 2011, according to which the two previous intellectual property offices, the State Patent Office of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Uzbek Republican Agency for Copyright, ceased to exist.

This newly formed agency has consolidated the two offices, accepted their responsibilities and will ensure the implementation of the single state policy on protection of intellectual property. The agency will also provide education in the field of intellectual property protection for its employees and will represent Uzbekistan at the World Intellectual Property Organization and other IP organizations.
