Patents and Designs

There is one law, namely " Myanmar Patents and Designs (Emergencies Provisions) Act, 1946. This law was enacted during the British Administration. Its main purpose was to apply the Indian Patents and Designs Act 1911 and so the law was defunct.

However, we are trying the best to protect the Patent and Design Rights in Myanmar with the existing laws in Myanmar. Thus a patent is also registrable in accordance with the Section 18(f) of the Registration Act.

The civil action can be taken against the infringer under S.54 of the Specific Relief Act, as to the Patent and Designs infringement.
