In order to expand the Eurasian system for the protection of industrial designs, the Protocol on the Protection of Industrial Designs was developed by the Eurasian Patent Office together with EAPO member countries. This document provides applicants with the opportunity to obtain regional protection of not only a patent for an invention, but also a Eurasian patent for an industrial design.

The draft Protocol was approved by the Republic of Kazakhstan on September 5, 2019 by Decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan No. 662.
