Purpose. Coverage of the peculiarities of information interaction between the Competent Authority, the Expert Institution, and the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) in the process of ensuring the protection of plant variety rights. Implementation of a new technological approach called data extraction which adds a new layer for categorization of queries to the data warehouse of qualification examination of plant varieties and information that accompanies this process. Also, disclosing the features of information technology provides access to applicants, owners, owners, and authors of varieties to information about their varieties in the process of qualification examination with a high level of protection against external and internal threats.

Methods. The methodology of conceptual modeling of the subject area is applied, which includes the representation of the relational structure of databases, as well as the technology of designing data warehouses on the basis of a single conceptual model. The theory of the construction of information systems, the theory of databases, the theory of object-oriented design, the theory of security of information systems are used.

Results. The analysis of existing information systems and technologies in agriculture is carried out. As well as means of information protection. Sources of information on the formation of the database and data repository of the results of qualification examination of plant varieties are considered. Particular attention is paid to the study of information needs in the field of protection of plant variety rights. problems of information dissemination are discussed. The information technology of interaction of the Competent and Expert body in the field of protection of the rights to plant varieties, and also providing of the information to the international organization UPOV is defined. Features of the organization of data warehouses for the preservation of results of DUS and VSU examinations are covered. The idea of combining the concept of storage and data showcase in one implementation is analyzed, which will allow using data storage both for data mining and as a single source of integrated data of all data showcases of the Competent Authority, Expert Body for Plant Variety Rights and the Applicant’s Electronic Cabinet. There is also a review of methods for protecting information from external and internal threats.

Conclusions. An information model has been developed that provides electronic interaction between the Competent Authority, the Expert Institution, and UPOV and the display of information through the software application «Service Office - Applicant’s Office». The peculiarities of the data showcase of the Competent Authority are highlighted. The functional content of the information system of the Expert Body is highlighted. The information technology of ensuring the life cycle of information systems and data protection from external and internal threats has been developed
