From July 1, 2024, the National Institute of Intellectual Property of Kazakhstan changed the prices for services related to the registration of trademarks, service marks, geographical indications, and names of places of origin of goods.

The amount of the fee for filing and conducting examination of the trademark application was increased from 91,000 to 113,750 tenge (USD 240), and for each additional class after the third in the application – from 14,700 to 31,875 tenge (USD 70).

Accelerated Trademark Registration Procedure Introduced
Updated rules for the examination of applications for objects of intellectual property have entered into force in Kazakhstan.

The new rules allow applicants to request an expedited examination of trademark applications, which will reduce the examination duration from seven to three months. A request for an accelerated examination of an application is submitted by the applicant at the time of application submission. Along with the petition, a document is submitted confirming the relevant payment.

The amount of the state fee for submitting an application and conducting an accelerated examination, when claiming up to three classes, is 770,000 tenge (approximately 1,735 USD) and 215,000 tenge for each additional class. For comparison, the cost of submitting an application and carrying out an examination according to the standard procedure is 91 thousand tenge (if up to three classes are claimed).

It is worth noting that even after an accelerated examination, if an application with a convention, exhibition, and (or) other priority is detected, such a trademark may be canceled. At the same time, the amount paid by the applicant is not returned.

Official Fees Amended
The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has made changes to certain official fees that came into effect on 19 September 2022.

The fee for trademark registration now only covers up to three classes of goods and services and no longer all classes applied for. An extra fee will now be charged for each additional class beyond three.

Furthermore, the IPO amended the fee for recording a change of name/address for registered IP rights by excluding the wording "fee per each change". Owners will now only pay one fee to record all changes to a registered IP right. However, when recording changes to applications, a fee will continue to be charged for each individual change.


Jul 27, 2022 (Newsletter Issue 10/22)
IP Laws Amended and TM Opposition Period Introduced
On June 20, 2022, Kazakhstan adopted a set of amendments to various intellectual property laws introducing significant changes in the field of intellectual property in relation to trademarks, geographical indications, patents, and industrial designs. The amendments will come into force on 21 August 2022.

With respect to trademarks, the most important changes are the following:

- Introduction of an opposition procedure for trademarks
An opposition procedure for trademarks has been introduced. Pending trademark applications are published weekly on the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) website. Any interested person may file an opposition to the pending applications on absolute or relative grounds within one month from the date of publication of the application with the IPO.
- Time limit for formal examination extended
The time limit for formal examination of a trademark application has been extended from 10 working days to one month from the application filing date.
- Time limit for IPO to record changes to registered trademarks changed
The time limit for the IPO to record changes to registered trademarks has been shortened from one month to 10 working days. The deadline for the IPO to inform trademark owners of recorded changes has also been significantly shortened, from two months to five working days.
- No obstacle to registration if distinctive character acquired through use before filing date
Currently, trademarks that are not capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one person from those of another are denied protection on absolute grounds. The only way to avoid refusal of protection is to impose a disclaimer on a non-distinctive element if it does not occupy the dominant position in the mark. According to the amendments, such elements are not an obstacle to registration if the distinctive character was acquired through use before the filing date.

In addition, it is already possible in Kazakhstan to register geographically related signs and names as appellations of origin (AO). Soon, the protection of geographical indications (GIs) will also be possible.

Official Language Requirements Amended
On January 11, 2022, legislative amendments concerning the status and use of the two official languages, Kazakhstan and Russian, came into force.

Under recent amendments, signboards of privately owned businesses and of non-governmental organisations, their announcements, advertisements, forms, price lists, price tags, menus, signs, and other visual information no longer must be in both Kazakh and Russian. They need to be in Kazakh only but may also be in Russian and/or other languages if required in certain circumstances.

Trademarks protected in Kazakhstan which are used in signboards of non-governmental organizations should remain unchanged and do not need to be translated.

It is now mandatory to use both Kazakh and Russian languages on:
- Labels applied to medication packaging and on the document that provides information about the medicine and its use; and
- Labels applied either directly to medical products or to their packaging and on instructions for their use (this applies to any instruments, devices, equipment, materials, and other items used in medical facilities).

Labelling of Medicines and Footwear Becomes Mandatory
Kazakhstan introduces mandatory digital labelling of footwear and medicines.

On November 1, 2021, Kazakhstan starts the mandatory digital labelling of footwear. The production and import of unlabelled shoes are prohibited from this date, but retailers are able to sell unlabelled footwear until November 1, 2022. All manufacturers and importers have to use the Labelling System and enter information about their goods in order to generate Data Matrix codes. These codes are then applied to the product using a sticker or a label. Imported products must be labelled before they go through the customs procedure – either at the production site in another country or at a customs warehouse in Kazakhstan.

The mandatory digital labelling of medicinal products is introduced on January 1, 2022. The implementation phases are determined by the Kazakh Ministry of Health. A pilot project is currently taking place to allow pharmaceutical companies to test the labelling procedure before it becomes mandatory. Four Kazakh pharmaceutical manufacturers, one importer, two distributors, five pharmacies and eight medical institutions, as well as the state-run medicine distributor SK-Pharmacy LLP, are participating in the project. Since the project's launch in September 2019, nearly 100,000 packages of medical devices have been digitally labelled.

CIS Countries Sign New Cooperation Agreement against Use of False TMs and GIs
On May 28, 2021, the CIS Council of Heads of Government signed the Agreement on Cooperation of CIS Member States on Prevention and Suppression of Use of False Trademarks and Geographical Indications. The member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States are Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

The document replaces the existing Agreement signed in 1999, inspired by the TRIPS Agreement and the Madrid Agreement for the Repression of False or Deceptive Indications of Source on Goods. It was aimed at establishing the coordination mechanism among the law enforcement bodies to protect the interests of rightsholders and consumers against unfair use of indications on products.

The reviewed act optimizes the arrangements of the Parties, adjusts terminology, and updates the legal acts underlying the cooperation. The new Agreement shall enter into force 30 days after the third Party deposits a written notification that it has completed its domestic procedures. For those Parties that complete their domestic procedures later, the Agreement shall enter into force 30 days after the deposit of their written notifications.

EAEU Trademark Agreement in Force
On April 26, 2021, the Agreement on the Eurasian Economic Union Trademarks, Service Marks and Appellations of Origin, signed on February 3, 2020 by all five Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member countries – Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia, entered into force, following the recent ratification by all member states, including the last state, Kazakhstan.

The Agreement introduces a new system for the registration of EAEU trademarks. Instead of registering a trademark in each EAEU member state, the Agreement provides a centralized filing of the application and further prosecution in one IP Office. The EAEU trademark is kept in a single register administered by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Further, applicants receive a unified protection certificate.

All tobacco products in Kazakhstan will need to include a unique identifier on their packaging, a Data Matrix code, containing information such as the product’s serial number and manufacturer’s name. The sale of tobacco products will only be possible with the use of a 2D barcode scanner, which will read the information contained in the Data Matrix code.


May 28, 2020 (Newsletter Issue 8/20)
Trademark Agreement by Eurasian Economic Union Members Signed
On February 3, 2020, the Agreement on the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) Trademarks, Service Marks and Appellations of Origin was signed by all EAEU members states, namely Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. The Agreement will enter into force once all member states bring their registration procedures and official fees in line with the Agreement and deposit their instruments of ratification to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), expected by the end of 2020. The Agreement was first signed by the EEC in December 2018.

This significantly moves forward the process of establishing a unified EAEU IP system, under which right holders will be able to obtain legal protection simultaneously in all EAEU member states by submitting one application to any of the national offices. Trademark applications will undergo preliminary (formal) and substantive examination, with the entire registration procedure estimated to take approximately one year. The EAEU trademark will be kept in a single register administered by the EEC.

Pending Trademark Applications Online Now
Recently, the information on all pending trademark applications in Kazakhstan became available on the National Institute of Intellectual property (NIIP) website, in Russian and Kazakh languages only.

The applications are published online within five working days after the formal examination is completed. This will simplify the monitoring of potentially infringing applications, enabling rights holders to file observations and oppositions before such applications become registrations.

IP Legislation Amended
On July 3, 2018, various intellectual property legislation amendments came into force in Kazakhstan. The amendments were adopted in order to fill the gaps in the existing legislation and to simplify the administrative procedures related to obtaining IP rights protection.

Amendments to IP Laws Drafted
The Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Justice has drafted a new law amending and supplementing a number of intellectual property laws and regulations to align Kazakhstan’s IP legislation with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) standards in the area of IP protection and with the Singapore Treaty on the Law of Trademarks.

The Ministry of Justice has held public hearings on the draft law, which aims to introduce the following:
- A single-level system for the registration of IP rights, i.e. all registrations shall be handled by the National Institute of Intellectual Property (NIIP), as opposed to the current two-level system where both the NIIP and the department for IP-related rights within the Ministry of Justice are involved;
- An appeal board shall be created within the NIIP to handle potential appeals against NIIP’s decisions, instead of going directly to court;
- Stronger enforcement measures, including fair compensation to IP rights owners;
- Simplified recording of license, sublicense and assignment agreements – currently, four originals of the agreement are needed for the recordal, but according to the draft law, only a certified copy or extract of the agreement will be required;
- Harmonisation of the ‘exclusive license’ definition with that of the Singapore Treaty — according to current regulations, a licensor retains his right to use a patent, trademark, industrial design or plant variety even after transferring his license to a licensee. According to the draft law, this right will truly be exclusive to the license holder, that is, the licensor will lose his IP right once he transfers his license.
- Clarification of what is to be done with original goods found in the same shipment with counterfeit goods – they are to be transferred to the rights holder or to their representative, provided that their appearance or purpose have not been altered; and
- Clarification regarding proof of use of a trademark – the use of a registered trademark in a slightly different form that does not influence its distinctiveness should be considered as proper use and can not be the ground for cancellation.

Official Fees Increased
Under the Order No. 294 dated May 26, 2015, of the Minister of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan new official fees came into effect as of June 11, 2015.

Particularly, official fees for trademarks have been significantly increased from about 20 to about 100 percent.

The new official fee for filing a trademark application, including examination, is now KZT 60,599.84 for up to three classes. The filing fee for each additional class is KZT 9,800. The official registration fee is KZT 24,000.48.

Also, the possibility of accelerated prosecution of the inventions has been introduced. The official fees for acceleration of the formal and substantive examinations are respectively 15 percent and percent higher than the stipulated basic fees. Previously excluded percent discount on the examination fee for applications with established international search report or an international preliminary examination report was retrieved.

In the meantime, new percent discount was added for applicants being small and middle entities related to the registration of inventions, utility models, industrial designs and selection achievements. It should be noted that aforesaid discount is provided only to resident entities.

IP Law Amended
The Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On Trademarks, Service Marks and Appellations of Origin" has been amended and the following changes came into effect on April 20, 2015:

- It is no longer possible for several persons to be listed as co-applicants for one application and the requirement for applicants - natural persons to be registered as individual entrepreneurs was abolished;
- An applicant will have the right to file a request for assignment of a trademark application without executing and registering an assignment agreement;
- Issuance of a trademark certificate is cancelled. The information about trademark registration is published by the expert organization in the Official Bulletin and in the Internet resources. The fact of a trademark registration and of amendments to this registration is confirmed by the extract from the State Register of Trademarks.
- The timing of the trademarks registration has been reduced. The Law establishes the timeframes for all stages of the examination of the application for registration of a trademark, details the timing of the approval of preliminary and final expert opinions by the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the timing of the delivery of such opinions to the applicants.
- The list of absolute grounds for refusal in trademark registration has been changed. The registration formerly would have been refused if a trademark consisted exclusively of designations which are non-distinctive and constitute international unpatentable names of pharmaceuticals (e.g., amoxicillin, ampicillin). Such basis as direct associative connection with the goods or services for the designation of which the trademark is used has been excluded from the list of absolute grounds. Previously, the existence of those absolute grounds precluded the registration of practically any trademarks that could be associated with the applied goods and/or services.
- Disputes arising from trademark registration (or refusal thereof) and non-use cancellation of trademarks cannot be brought directly to the court. They will be considered by the Appeal Board of the Trademark Office first.
