Patent Registration

The Patent Law of the United Arab Emirates grants an inventor or assignee a
limited period of time to exclusively use and sell an invention in exchange for
public disclosure. In order to be granted, an application must meet the criteria of Novelty, novelty plus non-obviousness i.e. inventive concept, and usefulness.

Protection of industrial property in the UAE is granted for any new invention
resulting from an innovative idea or innovative improvement of an invention in all fields of technology. The invention must have a scientific basis and be applicable in agriculture, fisheries, handicrafts, and services.

Intellectual property rights violations are a crime and we don’t believe we should be negotiating crimes with our trading partners
