Accession to the Paris Convention


Kuwait has acceded to the Paris Convention for the Protection of Intellectual Property on 2 September 2014 becoming the 176th country of the said Convention which will enter into force on 2 December 2014. As of this date applicant of trademarks can claim priority for trademarks under Paris Convention.

As for trademarks, the Kuwaiti Trademark Office has still not clearly defined the requirements for submission of the priority document. A certified copy will be the standard procedure but the time frame for filing the document has not been defined yet. Now and according to the present practice of the trademarks office it is not necessary to submit all relevant documents at the time of filing. The documents can be filed later at no time limit.
