Lately the Patent Office has deiced to start examining the files of all patents applications to check the missing documents. The KPO set 21 July 2010 as a deadline for all patent agents to review their files and complete the missing documents.
However it is not clear yet whether the patent office will accept further extension beyond the given date.
By way of background, patent applications were only filed at the Kuwaiti Patent office and no further action is taken as to the examining of filing requirements. The substantive examination of all patents will commence shortly after finalizing the formal examination.
