Saudi Arabia: New Scale for Filing and Registration Numbers

February 27, 2014

The Saudi Trademark Office has introduced a new numbering method for trademark applications. Following the e-filing system which was introduced only a few months ago, applications are now allotted an e-number which will be taken as the filing number and will remain the same at the time of registration (i.e. registration number). The e-number basically begins with the Lunar year during which the application was filed. Previously, an application was allotted a different number at the time of registration.
