ABU DHABI – On 7 July 2019, the Ministry of Economy issued a decision to waive the official fees on some services related to patents, industrial designs, and utility models (effective as of September 2019). Those services are as follows:
- Recordals of assignments, mergers, license agreements, etc.
- Patent restoration
- Change of representative
We have been informed, however, that the Ministry is planning to withdraw this decision and reinstate the prior official fees. We shall keep you apprised if/when that occurs.
