As recently reported on this website, a new IP law has been published in the Seychelles, which is expected to come into force in the near future. The new law does not provide for the re-registration of granted UK or EP(UK) patents in the Seychelles. However, we have now been assured by the Registrar that the lack of any transitional periods in the new law for the continued filing of such re-registration applications will be addressed in the form of an amendment when the date of commencement of the law and the implementing regulations are established and published.
