Saudi Arabia: Patent Grievances Committee Established

October 1, 2019

As part of the country’s efforts in advancing its IP procurement, Saudi Arabia established the Patent Grievances Committee.

Pursuant to Article 35 of the Law of Patents, Layout Designs of Integrated Circuits, Plant Varieties, and Industrial Models, the Committee has the jurisdiction to hear infringement cases, invalidation cases, and allows applicants and interested parties to have a clear mechanism for appealing or opposing official decisions.

We expect the Committee will streamline patent related procedures and motivate innovation and economic systems in Saudi Arabia.
