On September 22, 2021, a webinar was held for representatives of SMEs on the topic "Regional brand as a tool for promoting a local product".
The purpose of these events is to familiarize SMEs with such an object of intellectual property as Appelation of origin (AOI) and with some aspects of the AOI registration procedure.
Akimats and entrepreneurs of the cities of Nur-Sultan and Shymkent, Akmola, Aktobe and Almaty regions took part in the webinar.
AOI are special tools in promoting local products, as well as in increasing the economic potential of the region and even individual countries, the development of the tourism industry, gastronomic tourism, which subsequently has a favorable effect on the economy of these countries.
During the webinar, Kazpatent experts provided information on the procedure for submitting applications and registering AIO in the Republic of Kazakhstan. The Akimat of the Almaty region has proposed examples for the registration of such AOI as: pear of the "Talgarka" variety, Aksu sugar, Turgen wine.
Following the results of the webinar, an agreement was adopted on further joint work on submitting applications for registration of AOI.
- Registration of AOI has a number of advantages. One of the most important is the possibility of additional registration of the granting of an exclusive right to a previously registered name of the place of origin of the goods. If the AOI is already registered, the manufacturer wishing to obtain exclusive rights to it can apply to Kazpatent. After successful verification of the goods or services to the requirements of the AOI, information on registration will be entered in the State Register of appellation of origin of the Republic of Kazakhstan and published in the official bulletin.
