UAE: Shifting to an Electronic System

May 2, 2012

The Trademark Office in the UAE has recently adopted the WIPO Industrial Property Automation System (IPAS). By way of background, the IPAS is an adaptable system that can be adjusted to individual Trademark and Patent Offices to automate all their intellectual property services (trademarks, patents, industrial designs…). This system can be adapted to the size of the office, the workflow, the data volume, the rules and regulations … It also includes preparing templates for notifications, certificates, correspondences…

As a result of this shift and until the setup is complete, delays in filing new trademark applications may be expected to occur. Meanwhile, we will be handling all the instructions we receive from you with utmost care in order to ensure proper follow up and organization.
