ABU DHABI – The Trademarks and Copyright Works Department of the Ministry of Economy (the Department) announced, by a circular letter dated 8 March 2023, that it is no longer possible to request an amendment of a pending trademark application after filing.
If the application contains errors, the applicant or its agent can request the cancellation of the application and file a new, corrected application. If the error is of a technical nature (e.g. wrong items or wrong classes), however, the Department will issue a refusal decision which can be appealed within thirty (30) days from the date of the notification.
