13.1.2022

Because of the current state of emergency and nationwide internet outages in Kazakhstan, the Kazakh Intellectual Property Office has decided to disregard the deadlines falling during the state of emergency, currently in effect until 19 January 2022.

As stated on the IPO’s website, applications for IP rights will not be cancelled in case of late fee payments, late response to requests and/or late provision of requested documents, while the state of emergency is in effect.
