Saudi Arabia: Automating the Patent Filing System

April 3, 2012

The Patent Office in Saudi Arabia has recently launched a new system to file patent applications electronically. On-line applications will be acceptable as of March 28, 2012. This new system allows applicants to fill out an electronic application form, check and review it for accuracy and precision, and then submit it directly over the internet to the Patent Office. The system then generates a filing date and a filing number. At a later stage, the supporting documents would be submitted to the Patent Office in order to complete the registration requirements. This service is only available for new applications.
