Upcoming Change in Official Fees

The UAE Cabinet of Ministers has issued Cabinet Resolution No. (112) of 2023, addressing services provided by the Ministry of Economy, with a focus on patents, industrial designs, and utility models.

This resolution entails the reinstatement of official fees for all zero-rated services affected by the previous Cabinet Resolution No. (20) of 2020. The revised fee structure will affect various services, including annuities, publications, assignments, amendments, restorations, and more.

Additionally, new services have been introduced, such as expedited examination, payment based on the number of claims, increase in the number of claims, and re-examination with minimal errors.

Moreover, a revised fee schedule, featuring decreased charges, has been implemented for academic entities.

The Cabinet issued this resolution on November 13, 2023, and it will take effect on January 13, 2024, within 60 days of its publication in the official gazette.
