Cadre juridique régional pour la protection des savoirs traditionnels et des expressions de la culture

Ce travail d'élaboration a été fait en collaboration étroite avec la CPS et les États et territoires membres du Forum des îles du Pacifique, ainsi que du Conseil des arts du Pacifique que composent les 27 États et territoires participant au Festival des arts du Pacifique. Il prend en compte les réflexions menées dans ce domaine au niveau international, notamment par l'Organisation mondiale de la propriété intellectuelle (OMPI) et l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l’éducation, la science et la culture (UNESCO).

La loi type régissant la protection des savoirs traditionnels et des expressions de la culture est un projet de loi destiné à servir de modèle pour l'établissement d'un nouvel ensemble de droits conférés par la loi à des propriétaires ancestraux de savoirs traditionnels et d'expressions de la culture. Ce modèle de législation fournit aux pays océaniens une base d'après laquelle ils peuvent légiférer en matière de protection des savoirs traditionnels et des expressions de la culture.

Guidelines for developing national legislation for the protection of traditional knowledge and expressions of culture based on the Pacific Model Law 2002


The Guidelines are intended to provide technical assistance to policy-makers in Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) in the development of national legislation for the protection of traditional knowledge and expressions of culture (TKECs) based on the Model Law for the Protection of Traditional Knowledge and Expressions of Culture (the ‘Pacific Model Law’).
The Guidelines have been designed to align with the areas in which PICTs have indicated they require assistance:
 • guidance on an effective policy process that could be followed when using the Pacific Model Law as the basis for developing national legislation;
 • guidance on the policy questions that need to be considered when developing the legal elements of protection in the legislation; and
 • guidance on implementation options when using the Pacific Model Law as the basis for developing national legislation.

security and natural resources management. It is therefore vital to their future well-being and sustainable development.

Regional Framework for the Protection of Traditional Knowledge and Expressions of Culture

The Pacific Regional Framework has been developed in close consultation with SPC, UNESCO and Forum Pacific Island member countries and territories and the Council of Pacific Arts, which comprises the twenty–seven countries and territories which participate in the Festival of Pacific Arts. It is reflective of developments taking place at in international level such as the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

The Model Law for the Protection of Traditional Knowledge and Expressions of Culture is a draft model law establishing a new range of statutory rights for traditional owners of traditional knowledge and expressions of culture. The model law provides a basis for Pacific Island countries wishing to enact legislation for the protection of traditional knowledge and expressions of culture.
