Dubai Trademark Registration Procedure

Registering a trademark in Dubai involves a straightforward procedure. These are the steps you need to follow:

Check Trademark Availability

Start by checking the availability of your desired trademark. Conduct a search in the Federal Institute of Intellectual Property database to ensure that the trademark is not already registered. In case a trademark has already been taken, you will have to choose a different one.

Fill Out the Trademark Application

You will find the trademark application form on the website of the Ministry of Economy. Get started by filling this form accurately. Also, upload the necessary documents along with your application.

Pay the Registration Fees

After submitting the application, proceed to pay the required trademark registration fees. Currently, trademark registration in Dubai costs AED 8,700, but it is advisable to check for any updates or changes before applying. You will have to pay an additional fee to register more than one trademark or trademark under multiple classes.

Application Evaluation

The Ministry of Economy will review your trademark registration application. Make sure that you provide all information to the best of your knowledge while also avoiding errors. Minor mistakes or misspelled details may result in the rejection of the application. In case of rejection, you have the option to appeal or modify the application accordingly. Assuming there are no issues, the ministry should approve your application within 30 days.

Publish in Arabic-Language Newspapers

Upon approval, you must publish your trademark in two local Arabic-language newspapers. This publication serves to inform the public about your trademark. This step may come along with additional costs. You will have to wait 30 days to check if any objections are raised by the public. In case of no objections, you can move on to the final registration step.

Final Registration

Once the objection period has passed without any rejections, you can obtain the official registration certification from the trademark office.
With the official registration certification in hand, you can conduct your business with the assurance that your trademark is protected.

Period of Protection

A Trademark is registered for a period of 10 years and has to be renewed every 10 years. A Copyright is usually valid for a period of 50 years. There are some variances depending on the category of work which is being copyrighted.

Time frame for Registration

A Trademark takes anywhere between 10 – 12 months for  final registration. During the Trademark process, the company can use the ‘TM’ symbol to discourage competition and can use the ‘R’ symbol upon final registration. A Copyright can be registered  within 3 weeks to 2 months’ time. Intellectual Property protection is a very important process, which many entrepreneurs take for granted.

The use of IP protection guarantees that any non-approved or non-ethical use is stopped. As can be seen in various cases like Apple vs Samsung and more recently Lego vs LEPIN, IP protection yields its rewards.
