Furthermore, a section on Legislation provides links to the Legislation -Primary and Secondary- applicable to Intellectual Property Rights in Kosovo.

Over a three-and-a-half-year period, the Project “EU Support for the Intellectual Property Rights System in Kosovo” has supported the Kosovar Authorities in strengthening the institutional and legislative framework on IPR and aligning it to the European Union standards.
