Database on Flexibilities in the Intellectual Property System

At the sixth session of the CDIP, member states agreed to establish the Database on Flexibilities in the Intellectual Property (IP) System. It contains data drawn from WIPO documents on Patent Related Flexibilities in the Multilateral Legal Framework and their Legislative Implementation at the National and Regional Levels (namely CDIP/5/4 Rev., CDIP/7/3 Add, CDIP/13/10 Rev, and CDIP/15/6 Corr.).

The database allows searches for implementation of flexibilities in national IP laws in selected jurisdictions.

The references to laws were accurate at the date of publication of the above-mentioned documents. However, users are advised to cross-check laws in WIPO Lex to ensure that the most up-to-date version of the law is referenced.
