Intellect under Protection


To further improve the intellectual property protection system, Uzbekistan is creating a customs register of intellectual property, which will open up new opportunities for intellectual property owners.

The project is implemented in accordance with the new edition of the Customs Code, approved by the law on 20 January 2016.

In the future, the Customs Register of Intellectual Property will operate to perfect the situation in this field. The holder of the rights or his authorized representative in the prescribed manner shall submit the application to the State Customs Committee for entry in the register. The application should have the attached certified by the copyright holder copies of documents confirming his rights (patents, certificates, licensing agreements or other documents).

The legal owner or his authorized representative, upon registration in the Customs Register of Intellectual Property for the protection of intellectual property rights, may apply to the customs authorities to take measures to prevent the export of goods under customs control.

When goods specified by the copyright holder as counterfeit are identified in the course of registration and customs control, the customs authorities avoid passing those goods through the border and give the copyright holders an opportunity to defend their rights.

The Registry will help the Customs Committee in cooperation with the Agency for Intellectual Property to take measures to protect the right to intellectual property, prevent the illegal import of counterfeit goods and their turnover in Uzbekistan.
