Extending the protection period of design in KSA

Extending the protection period of design in KSA

In accordance with the amended Patent and Industrial Design Law, effective as of October 3rd, 2023, the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property has prolonged the safeguarding duration for industrial designs from ten to fifteen years for all designs submitted in 2013 and onwards.

Consequently, the 11th annuity fees for active designs filed in 2013 must be settled before May 23, 2024, to benefit from the extension of the protection period.
