Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)

Georgia has a modern system of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) that is fully harmonized with international standards, namely, it is in line with the requirements of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) administered by the World Trade Organization and is also compatible with the European Union legislation.

The legal mechanisms of accrual and enforcement of IP rights on different subject-matters are regulated by up to 30 laws, by-laws and numerous guidelines. The central body that determines the policy in the IP field and is responsible for granting rights is the National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia Sakpatenti.
