The Kingdom Strikes Again: New Committee for the Enforcement of IPRs

October 30, 2020

In compliance with its mandate to unify all intellectual property (IP) related matters under one centralized agency in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP) announced the formation of the National Committee for the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights (NCEIP).

In addition to the committee’s various responsibilities that include being in charge of the enforcement of IP rights in Saudi Arabia, the NCEIP will be tasked with the creation and development of local IP legislation and the issuance of the appropriate implementing regulations. The NCEIP will also be expected to regularly issue reports and case studies to assess and continuously improve the local legal landscape.

The current status of the laws and regulations in Saudi Arabia provide brand owners with all the rights to be able to protect their intangible assets and encourage further investment in developing innovative products and processes.
