The Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis has published the Law "On Some Legislative Acts of the Republic of Uzbekistan". Among several acts, amendments were made to the laws regulating registration and protection of intellectual property rights.

Main changes:

  • The Agency on Intellectual Property of the Republic of Uzbekistan was renamed into the Agency on Intellectual Property under the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Uzbekistan
  • Applications for patents and registration of a trademark, appellation of origin and the right to use an appellation of origin are submitted to the Agency through state information systems
