The Electronic Transactions Law No. 15 of 2015 entered into force in Jordan on May 15, 2015. Article 4 of the law stipulates that ministries and other governmental institutions may allow electronic transactions, including inquiries, filing and other relevant transactions, provided that the authorities concerned have the appropriate system and regulations setup in accordance with the law and its implementing regulations.

This update is expected to pave the way for the electronic filing of applications at the Directorate of Industrial Property. Discussions are currently underway to devise the best mechanism for implementing e-filing and e-payments for industrial property applications in Jordan.
