The national system of industrial property is an important part of the infrastructure of innovation, and the reform and improvement of this system is a practical step towards enhancing the national capacity for innovation. An effective industrial property system provides the infrastructure that facilitates technology transfer and helps attract foreign direct investment. However, in many developing countries, setting up an industrial property system does not meet their development needs. In Iran, this system has a long history, but the impact of their development is unknown. The purpose of this study is to develop a model for evaluating the successful implementation of industrial property policy. This research is of qualitative type and its method is data foundation theory and the required data are obtained from semi-structured owners. For this purpose, 13 experts, professors and experts with sufficient knowledge and practical experience were interviewed and a semi-structured method based on Atlas ta software was used to collect the required research data. To validate the results of the interviews with experts, 90 property policy implementers were surveyed, and through data analysis, the researcher discovered, identified, and classified the facts and results. In this study, the researcher analyzed the data and information obtained from the questionnaire after extraction and classification using SmartPLS2 and SPSS26 software. The result is a valid tool for evaluating the implementation of industrial property policies in the country
