We are pleased to announce that the first four applications from Kazakhstan applicants using the updated electronic document management system were submitted to the EAPO in December 2020.
The electronic document management project between EAPO and KAZPATENT started after the signing of a bilateral agreement on electronic exchange of documents on Eurasian applications and Eurasian patents in 2019. The agreement provides for the shipment of Eurasian applications in the EAPO-ONLINE system.
Due to the update of the EAPO-ONLINE system functionality at the end of 2020, KAZPATENT can not only send Eurasian applications to the EAPO, but also receive the necessary documents from the EAPO exclusively in electronic form. Further interaction of applicants and patent attorneys of Kazakhstan with the EAPO can also be carried out through the EAPO-ONLINE system.
Since the beginning of the year, 66 Eurasian applications have been transmitted electronically from the NIIP to the EAPO.
By the way, Kazakhstan is the first country among the member states of the Eurasian Patent Organization to sign the Agreement on Electronic Document Management for Eurasian applications and Eurasian patents.
