The Omani Patent Office is now accepting design applications, by virtue of Industrial Property Law no. 67/2008. Even though examination of the required documents is being conducted, neither substantive nor formal examinations are being implemented yet.

Publication and grant fees should be paid 12 months from the filing date and the Directorate issues the registration certificate following the publication of a notice in the Official Gazette. The Intellectual Property Directorate is yet to disclose specific formalities regarding examination, publication, registration and renewal. We will keep you informed of any developments that will occur.
