Description

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.
