As previously reported, Patent Law No. 30 of 2006 came into force in Qatar on 7th August 2006, but  this law would only become effective once the implementing regulations had been issued there.  On 5th July 2018, the long-awaited regulations finally entered into force.  These regulations will provide clarification to the patent procurement process in Qatar.
