Due to the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated 08.02.2019 N PP-4168 "On measures to improve public administration in the field of intellectual property" starting from 1 September 2019 it will be possible to register the trademark only online and to submit an application in electronic form through the centers of public services or the Unified Portal of Interactive Public Services.
It should be noted that it will be necessary to be a citizen of Uzbekistan to use the services of the Single Portal of Interactive Public Services, i.e. foreign applicants may file application through a registered local Patent Attorney.
Besides, the Ministry of Justice conducted a full inspection of all trademarks registered in the country to detect facts of unfair registration of well-known trademarks.
Another innovation is that the Agency for Intellectual Property publishes applications on its official website within 1 working day. http://baza.ima.uz/?lang=ru#marks-grid. After the publication of the applications, all interested parties may submit written comments to the Agency concerning an issue of bad faith of submitted applications for registration.
