New regional Design patent in the Eurasian Patent Organization


Start of Acceptance of Eurasian Applications for Industrial Designs

Starting from 01 June 2021 some of the member states of the Eurasian Patent Convention (EAPC), namely the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan offer the possibility to achieve design protection by filing only one single design application, which is valid for the 5 above-mentioned member states. Further member states of the EAPC will possibly follow shortly. This are good news for applicants, who are interested in a cost-saving protection for a set of countries.

For further information, please see the following website of the EAPO: link
