Registration Trademarks in Kyrgyzpatent

Brief information about the law concerning trademark registration in Kyrgyzstan:

Trademark protection issues are regulated by the Law of Kyrgyzstan "On Trademarks, Service Marks and Geographical Indications" dated January 14, 1998. This law has undergone changes and now the version of the Law of March 23, 2020 is in force.

The State Intellectual Property and Innovation Service under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (in short - Kyrgyzpatent) is the state authority responsible for registering and granting legal protection to intellectual property.

Verbal, pictorial, three-dimensional and other designations or combinations thereof, such as abbreviations, words, slogans, logos, photos, drawings can be registered as a trademark. A trademark can be registered in any color or color combination. Marks that are visually indistinguishable, as well as audible and olfactory marks are not subject to registration.

Also, Kyrgyzpatent does not accept for registration common terms and symbols with respect to those goods to which they will be applied. For example, the word "Plumbing" in relation to plumbing products.

Marks similar to already registered trademarks or not yet registered but applied for registration in respect of similar goods cannot be registered. For example, Ortanol and Ortinol or Mulinex and Mulimax.

Trademark protection in Kyrgyzstan is possible in the following ways:

 the designation of Kyrgyzstan in the international application, if filed under the Madrid Agreement;

  filing a national procedure application with Kyrgyzpatent.

Who can act as an applicant and in whose name a trademark can be registered, who has the exclusive right to the trademark at the time of the emergence of this right?

An application for registration of a trademark is submitted by a legal entity or an individual engaged in entrepreneurial business.

Consideration of the application at Kyrgyzpatent includes preliminary and full examination. Preliminary examination takes 1 month and full examination takes 12 months from the date of filing the application. The period of examination of the application may be shortened at the request of the applicant and upon payment of the relevant fee, but not earlier than six months from the date of application filing.

Kyrgyzpatent does not publish information about applications submitted.

Registration of a trademark is carried out after the completion of the examination and payment of the relevant fee. Based on the results of a full examination, in the absence of grounds for refusal, a decision is made on the registration of a trademark and a number is assigned to the trademark. Information about the trademark is published in the Official Bulletin of Kyrgyzpatent. The owner is issued a certificate for a period of ten years, which can be extended for subsequent ten-year periods.

If there is a trademark dispute, disputes over Kyrgyzpatent's adjudications and challenges to trademark registrations are resolved by the Board of Appeals established under Kyrgyzpatent. The Board of Appeals is a mandatory pre-trial authority.

The decision of the Kyrgyzpatent Board of Appeals may be appealed by the applicant in court within 6 months from the date of its receipt.

Illegal usage of a trademark may entail civil, administrative or criminal liability.

Kyrgyzstan protects civil rights from illegal usage of a trademark besides claiming for cessation of infringement or recovery of damages caused:

 publication of the court decision in order to restore the victim's business reputation;

 removal of illegally used trademark or designation similar to the point of confusion from the product or its packaging;

 the seizure or destruction of goods in respect of which the trademark was illegally applied.

According to the Administrative Code of Kyrgyzstan, the illegal usage of someone else's trademark entails the imposition of an administrative fine on both citizens and officials with the confiscation of goods with a falsified trademark.

According to the Criminal Code of Kyrgyzstan, the illegal use of someone else's trademark, if it caused major damage, is punishable by a large fine or community service.

The Kyrgyzpatent website has access to a search of registered trademarks in the country.

You can apply for registration of a trademark through the electronic filing system or to the office in hard copy.

The application should be submitted in Kyrgyz or Russian language.

The official language according to the Law on the State Language of Kyrgyzstan is Russian.
