Here, you can catch a glimpse of some of the important procedures that you need to move across while registering for a trademark:
If you are planning to form a company in Dubai or any of the free zone areas or anywhere across UAE, you need to put forward an application to the Ministry of Economy & Commerce. All the details in the application form needs to be filled in Arabic. You need to place 14 specimen drawings of each of the marks.
Any locally licensed law firms in Dubai can help you with the application filing process.
The rest of the procedures are carried out by the ministry, it is their responsibility to go through the applications and approve it. In some cases, where the Ministry finds information missing or inappropriate information has been provided, then the application will be rejected and the Ministry will prepare a report on the basis of the missing or inappropriate information.
During such instances, the Ministry directly summons the applicant and he/she needs to report at the Ministry within the specified period of time. The applicant can either choose to accept the Ministry’s report or choose to file a plea against it with the Trademarks Committee of the Ministry. If the Committee’s report is unfavorable, then the applicant can further choose to file an appeal at the Civil Court.
Once all the issues are resolved, the approved trademark applications will be published in the UAE Official Gazette. Apart from this, it also needs to be published in the nation’s two leading newspapers.
Now, the general public has 30 days within which they need to respond, if they have any objections with regard to the trademark and this must be forwarded in a written notice to the Ministry. For any objections that arise, the applicant has another 30 days within which they must take an action.
The Ministry now decides whether to approve or reject the trademark. In case, if the Ministry decides to reject it, the applicant can go for an appeal to the Trademarks Committee of the Ministry. If the Ministry approves the trademark, the applicant needs to send notifications to the federal and local bodies as well as the Chambers of Commerce & Industry, and provide these concerned authorities with further details.
