Patents and other protection documents will be issued in electronic form


On the 8th of July, 2020, the State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted in the third (final) reading amendments to the fourth part of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation on the expansion of the use of electronic technologies in the registration of Intellectual Property Rights. It is planned to provide the applicant with the opportunity to attach three-dimensional models of the claimed objects to the application materials: inventions, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks in electronic form. Security documents with the exception of patents for secret inventions will be issued in electronic form. At the same time, the applicant retains the opportunity to receive them at will on paper. According to the Head of the Committee on State-Building and Legislation Pavel Krasheninnikov, it is proposed that the new standards be put into effect six months after the official publication of the Law, which is associated with the preparation of Rospatent for their implementation.
