Calling Strasbourg: Saudi Arabia Joins the IPC Agreement

October 1, 2020

Saudi Arabia recently ratified its accession to the Strasbourg Agreement Concerning the International Patent Classification. This news follows Saudi Arabia’s accession to three key World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaties: the Budapest Treaty, the Locarno Agreement, and Vienna Agreement.

By joining these international intellectual property (IP) treaties, specifically with regard to industrial designs, trademarks and patents, Saudi Arabia is modernizing the IP legal framework and office practices.

Saudi Arabia is implementing a national IP strategy through the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP) to help ensure that its IP regime is modern, robust, and that supports innovation locally, regionally, and internationally.
