General legal newsletter for February 2022

Some notable legal changes in Uzbekistan in February 2022 included the strengthening of responsibility for violating the legislation on intellectual property, measures to develop animal husbandry, the creation of a chemical industrial park in the Tashkent region.

As sanctions have been imposed on Russia, one of Uzbekistan’s key economic partners, President Mirziyoyev has instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to develop an action plan for addressing possible negative consequences in each industry and region. Details of such measures are expected to follow.  


Responsibility for violating the intellectual property (IP) legislation has been strengthened. Hence, among others, a fine of 100-200 times the baseline calculation value (approx. USD 2,500-5,000) has been set for legal entities engaged in the following:

  • unauthorized production, use, import, offering, sale, or storage of a product containing patented industrial property objects, or unauthorized use of a patented production method, or unauthorized introduction into circulation of a product manufactured with the use of a patented production method or storage for that purpose;
  • illegal use of a trademark, an appellation of origin of goods, or relevant confusingly similar designations for homogeneous goods;
  • illegal use of a company name.

Law No. ZRU-749 of 2 February 2022
