New Practice for Refused Trademarks Implemented

The Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP) has recently put in place several amendments to its practice.

One of the latest changes SAIP has introduced is the cancellation of granting applicants a 10-day period to amend the form of their refused trademark applications and they start using outright rejections after examination for trademarks that do not meet the formal and legal requirements, entitling applicants to only one venue, which is that of filing appeals within a non-extendable period of 60 days before the Appeals Committee.

Trademark applicants are now advised to be more accurate and careful in weighting all possible scenarios before submitting their trademark application, which could lead to possible rejections.
