UAE: From Similar to Identical

January 29, 2013

Effective immediately, the results of an official trademark search at the UAE Trademark Office will only reveal identical marks. Confusingly similar marks will not be covered in the report. Even though the scope of the search is now limited, this will remain the case until further notice. To help fill in this gap, an in-house search among published applications is highly recommended along with the official search. The results of the in-house search will then help us decide whether additional official searches would still be required.
