Draft Geographical Indication Bill Published


The Intellectual Property Organisation of Pakistan (IPO) prepared and published on its website the Draft Geographical Indication Protection Bill 2016.

There has been a need for comprehensive legislation because the current Trade Marks Ordinance 2001 provides only minimal provisions relating to the protection of geographical indications. The Draft Geographical Indication Protection Billl aims at improving protection and public awareness of geographical indication products in Pakistan and aligning local laws with international standards, such as TRIPS and the Paris Convention.

The draft bill published on the IPO website is open for discussion and public comment.
