UAE: New Patent Examination Procedures

DUBAI – The UAE Patent Office announced that new procedures for patent examination will be implemented, covering both new and pending applications that have not yet been examined.

Under the new procedures, the examiner may issue a "Fee Amendment Order" for services such as adding additional official fees of AED 1000 (US $274) for patents with more than 10 claims up to 30 claims, and AED 2000 (US $548) for patents with more than 30 claims up to 50 claims. Additionally, there will be an amendment fee of AED 2000 (US $548) for minor errors (if any), as per the examiner’s decision.

If we receive any notification regarding the new "Fee Amendment Order" for your applications, we will seek your instructions before proceeding with any payment. Read more
