Since June 1, 2021, the Eurasian Patent Office has started accepting and examining applications for granting Eurasian patents for industrial designs, which makes it possible to obtain legal protection for an industrial design simultaneously in several member states of the Eurasian Patent Convention.
On December 31, 2021, the President of Belarus signed Law No. 137-Z “On Accession of the Republic of Belarus to the Protocol on the Protection of Industrial Designs to the Eurasian Patent Convention of September 9, 1994” . The Protocol on the Protection of Industrial Designs will enter into force for Belarus three months after the deposit of the relevant Act of Accession with the Depositary.
Thus, after the entry into force of the Protocol for Belarus, the Eurasian industrial design patent will be valid on the territory of seven countries: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Belarus.
