1 Role of patent office (If any)
Role of Patent Office in the enforcement of IPRs has been clearly defined by Law on Patent, Utility Model Certificates and Industrial Design concerning the responsibility to enforce IPRs through the duty of its enforcement unit.
2 Relevant courts
With the recent approval of the Council of Ministers to establish a Commercial Court to deal with commercial and Intellectual Property Case in order to meet with its commitment during WTO accession, Cambodia now expects to have another court system specializing in settling commercial and IP disputes.
Presently, there is no plan to change any enforcement mechanism of IPRs in Cambodia. Intellectual Property Right Enforcement mechanism is based and continues to follow the principles of TRIPS.
