PVR: Seeds of change & growing NZ’s potential
This 1.5 hour webinar will discuss the new Plant Variety Rights Act 2022 – what it means for users, how it will change the future, and discuss what may be next.
The new PVR Act gives effect to the provisions of UPOV 91, without New Zealand becoming a full signatory to UPOV 91. This approach allows New Zealand to meet its obligations under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) while also following the recommendations from the Waitangi Tribunal report on the Wai 262 claim.
The event includes intellectual property and plant variety experts from New Zealand’s horticultural sector.
