Armenia and Tajikistan have joined the countries of the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO), whose patent offices have implemented the possibility of adding digital three-dimensional models to applications for patents for inventions and industrial designs.

Applicants can now take advantage of 3D visualization to further explain the essence of the claimed invention and more visually present the appearance of the products for which a patent or industrial design is claimed.

Accepting and processing of “3D models” is introduced as part of the application materials and the information security management system together with EAPO.

Previously, such functionality became possible when submitting applications in Azerbaijan.

The Eurasian Patent Office realized this possibility in November 2022.
