Plant Variety Protection Clarified

Managing Intellectual Property

On June 19, 2009, the National Assembly of Vietnam adopted several amendments to the IP Law, which will enter into effect on January 1, 2010. The amendments regarding plant variety protection clarify a number of issues. Importantly, the amendments have expanded the parties that are eligible to file for protection in Vietnam by adding foreign organizations and individuals having permanent residence or offices or having establishments producing or trading in plant varieties in countries that are signatories to agreements on plant variety protection for which Vietnam is also a member.
