How to register Trademark in UAE?

Registering a trademark in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) involves several steps and processes. Here's a general guide on how to register trademark in UAE:

  1. Conduct a Trademark Search: Before initiating the registration process, it's crucial to conduct a thorough search to ensure that your desired trademark is not already registered or too similar to existing trademarks in the UAE. This can be done through the UAE Trademark Office or through a professional trademark search service.
  2. Determine the Class(es) of Goods/Services: Trademarks are registered for specific classes of goods and services according to the Nice Classification system. Determine the appropriate class(es) that your trademark falls under. Each class requires a separate application and fee.
    • Prepare the Application: Gather all the necessary information and documentation for the application, including:
    • Applicant details: Full name, address, nationality, and legal status (individual, partnership, or company).
    • Trademark representation: Provide a clear representation of your trademark, which can be in the form of a logo, word, or both.
    • Description of goods/services: Clearly define the goods or services associated with the trademark.
    • Power of Attorney: If you're using an agent or attorney to file the application on your behalf, you'll need to provide a Power of Attorney document authorizing them to act on your behalf.
    • Priority claim:If you're claiming priority based on a previous application filed in another country, include the relevant details.
  3. File the Application: Submit your completed application and supporting documents to the UAE Trademark Office. You can file the application online or in person at their offices.
  4. Application Examination: The UAE Trademark Office will examine your application to ensure it meets the necessary requirements and does not conflict with existing trademarks. They will review the application for formalities, distinctiveness, and potential conflicts.
  5. Publication and Opposition Period: If the application is accepted, it will be published in the Official Gazette for a 30-day period. During this time, third parties have the opportunity to oppose the trademark registration if they believe it conflicts with their own trademarks. If no oppositions are filed within this period, the application will proceed to registration.
  6. Registration and Fees: If no opposition is received or successfully resolved, the trademark will be registered, and a registration certificate will be issued. Pay the necessary registration fees within the specified time frame to complete the registration process.
  7. Trademark Protection: Once registered, your trademark is protected in the UAE for ten years, renewable for further periods of ten years each. Monitor and enforce your trademark rights to prevent unauthorized use or infringement.
