On 13 September 2014, the Head of the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Egypt and the Minister of Industry in Oman has signed a memorandum of understanding agreement with respect to cooperation in the field of patents and other intellectual property matters between both countries.
Accordingly, there will be an exchange of practices between both patent offices, and the Egyptian Patent Office (EGPO) will host researchers from the Oman Patent Office (OPTO) for training in substantive examination of patent applications in Oman. The EGPO will also send examiners to the OPTO for training purposes. Additionally, all pending patent applications in Oman will be examined by the EGPO.
Needless to say, the EGPO is an accepted examiner at WIPO and PCT offices.
