RIYADH – The Ministry of Commerce and Investment has decided to implement the Gregorian calendar in addition to the Hijri calendar.
It is expected that the Ministry will install a proper integration system by the end of 2018.
The purpose of this integration is to facilitate the correct calculation of the due dates and deadlines related to trademark, patent, and design applications and to reduce the error rate in dates conversions due to the differences between the two calendars.
Further developments will be reported promptly.
