Kuwait: E-Filing with New Scale for Filing and Registration Numbers

January 11, 2018

The Trademark Office in Kuwait announced that it will begin receiving and processing trademark applications in electronic form as of January 2, 2018.

New applications will be allotted an e-number by the TMO, which includes the year of filing (example 321/2018). Besides serving as the filing number, the e-number will also be the registration number, should the trademark application mature into registration. Prior to e-filing, applications were allotted a six-digit number.

We expect this update to simplify and streamline the trademark filing process for applicants.
