Following a recent decision by the Bahraini Patent Office to begin substantively examining patent applications, the long-awaited Implementing Regulations of Law No. 1 of 2004 concerning patents and utility models were published on 13th December 2018.  It is hoped that these Regulations will provide a clearer prosecution procedure for patent applications in Bahrain.  

 

In addition, the Patent Office updated the official fees for patent applications, and introduced substantive examination fees.
