The expression "industrial designs" covers industrial designs and models. Offices which issue design patents should report their design patent information activities in this series of Annual Technical Reports.
I. Evolution of registration activities
Changes experienced in terms of application filings and grants (registrations) with respect to the previous year
In 2005 the procedure of filing and consideration of the applications on granting of the patents on industrial designs didn’t changed.
Trends or areas experiencing rapid changes with respect to the previous year
In 2004 70 applications were filing on the industrial designs were filing in State patent office. Most of them filed from the national applicants – 54,3%. Noting positive growth of filed by foreign applicants, in 2003 –13%, in 2004 – 30%, in reporting year – 45,7% increase from total number of the filed applicants.
The largest numbers of applications were filing on following classes on International Classification on Industrial Designs (ICID): 9 class (container, package goods), 12 class (transport facilities, lifting devices) - 12 applications , 23 class (equipment for dividing liquid and gas, sanitary equipment, equipment for the heating, and others) - 7 applications, 26 class (luminaries and device) - 6 applications, 7 class (household goods) – 5 applications. Indicated classes made 60.0 % from total of the filed applications.
II. Matters concerning the generation, reproduction, and distribution of industrial design documents and of secondary sources of industrial design information, i.e., official gazettes
Publishing, including printing, copying techniques and electronic printing
In 2005 the official publications of SPO on industrial designs included the following editions:
- official bulletin «Rasmiy Ahborotnoma»- 6 issues (on CD-ROMs);
- publication sheets to patents on industrial designs- 97 publication sheets (on
- collection of annual indexes to the official bulletin «Rasmiy Ahborotnoma» (sections of
indexes under industrial designs) - 1 volume.
The information on the registered industrial designs are published in sections of “Industrial designs” of the official bulletin “Rasmiy Ahborotnoma”, which is from the 2004y edited on CD-ROM. Information on industrial designs includes bibliographic data, list of material indications of industrial designs and image. In 2005 in the official bulletins was published information about 50 industrial designs.
Main types of announcements of the Office in the field of industrial design information
The main announcements, concerning activity of SPO on industrial designs accommodated in the section “Official information ” of the official bulletin “Rasmiy Ahborotnoma”, and on the site (www.patent.uz).
Mass storage media and microforms used
SPO have complete collection of patent documentation of Uzbekistan on the paper. Patent documentation stored in bibliographic database and in electronic depository.
Databases and office automation
During processing applications all documents concerning industrial designs, are scanned and kept in a facsimile kind in format TIFF. Descriptions and list of material indications are distinguished by system OCR and storing - in format MS-Word; images are introduce in format JPG.
The assembly chapter of official bulletin on industrial designs realized in automation regime in the publication department employee workplace. By the special request select and classified bibliographic data from the database (СУБД MS SQL Server 2000) and the texts of documents from the electronic storage. The follow-up operation (page-proof, duplication) made with Word the Adobe Acrobat program.
III. Matters concerning classifying, reclassifying and indexing of industrial design information according to the classification systems applied
Classification and reclassification activities; Classification system used, e.g., International Classification for Industrial Designs (Locarno Classification), other classification (please indicate whether industrial designs are classified by your Office and, if so, which classification is used)
The applications for industrial samples are classified according to 7-th edition by the International classification of industrial designs (Locarno Agreement). Other classification systems are not applied.
Bibliographic data and processing for search purposes
The bibliographic data are kept as dynamic XML - documents and in an internal database constructed on a basis SUBD MS SQL Server 2000. The primary filling of base is made by special group of input. The bibliographic data are supported and are updated during life cycle of the application by all departments involved in process. The changes in base will be authorized. The interfaces of access to base are constructed on the basis of Intranet-technologies.
IV. Search file establishment and upkeep
The search file on a paper and optical disks is formed on the basis of a collection of State Fund of the patent documentation and includes materials on the industrial designs contained in the foreign official bulletins 20 countries and the incorporated cumulative editions on industrial designs, prepared INIC Rospatent; is placed by a geographical principle. The retrospective part is submitted photograph library of industrial designs.
Under the national patent documents the bibliographic databases and electronic file (textual) storehouses for internal use are conducted.
The search files on a paper and part on CD/DVD-ROM are updated monthly, some CD/DVD-ROM are updated annually.
The bibliographic data and files of the documents in electronic storehouse under the national documents can replenish and - or be corrected in process of the reference.
Storage, including mass storage media
The conditions of a storage of fund depend mostly on kinds of carriers of the information: the patent documents on a paper are stored in wall cases, photograph library on microfilms - in boxes, on CD-ROM and DVD-ROM - in stores in wall cases.
The bases bibliographic, record keeping data and file storehouse are kepting on specialized a file - servers, and copied to additional server.
Documentation from other offices maintained and/or considered part of the available search file
In 2005 the State Fund of the patent documentation has replenished with the patent-information editions 20 countries of the world.
V. Activities in the field of computerized search systems for industrial designs
In-house systems (online/offline)
Is developed and the base of the bibliographic data on industrial designs is used and also operates system electronic documents circulation of CCATPA («Cross computer-aided technology of processing application»), which in 2005 year:
- organization on full-text search in files by journal CCATPA, which contained all objects of intellectual property carried out;
- projects on technological instruction for using CCATPA worked out.
The most using by experts the common access of databases in Internet concerns follows: Google, Rambler, Yahoo, Яndex.
Administrative management systems (e.g., register, legal status, statistics, administrative support, etc.)
Is entered into action and the automated system of general and patent office-work ensuring creation and conducting of archive of the electronic documents, exchange of the documents and messages, direction of the tasks on execution and control of execution of the assignments, routing of passage of the applications etc. is maintained
