Utility models are called sometimes small inventions. As opposed to the invention, the utility model does not have to meet such patentability requirement as "inventive step".This means that any device can be recognized as a utility model.
A utility model includes technical solutions in any field related to a product (device, substance, microorganism strain, plant or animal cell culture), method (the process of performing actions on a material object using material means), as well as the application of a known product or method according to a new purpose or a new product for a specific purpose, with the exception of diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical methods of treating people or animals.
The right to utility model is protected by patent, which is issued following the results of an examination conducted in accordance with the Patent Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
A patent certifies priority, authorship and exclusive right to an industrial property object.
Utility model patent is valid for five years starting from the filing date of the application. The validity of patent can be extended following a request from the right holder, but not more than for three years.
