The Trademark Office in the United Arab Emirates announced that trademark certificates will be issued electronically starting from gazette number 181 onwards. It is worth noting that no certificates will be issued for applications that will be accepted and published after November 2017.

We are pleased to announce that our colleagues at UAE Office utilized the system as soon as it became available on November 27, 2017, thus ensuring we were among the first to receive an e-certificate issued by the TMO.

We expect this new practice to pave the way for a smoother trademark registration process.
