Uzbekistan joined Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and offers the option to obtain a patent based on an international patent application.
Entry into the national phase in Uzbekistan is possible within 31 months from the priority date. Uzbekistan Patent Office accepts patent applications both for inventions and utility models.
Uzbekistan is not a member state of any regional patent systems, like EPO or Eurasian Patent Organization. So, the only possibility to obtain protection for a patent is PCT national phase or direct national application.
The patent materials for filing to Uzbekistan Patent Office should be translated into Russian or Uzbek. The translation into only one language is required.
The applicant, who is a non-resident of Uzbekistan, has to hire a local licensed patent attorney. Crane IP
