Regulatory Body

Patents in Kuwait are administered by the ‘Trademarks and Patents Department’ of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

Legal Framework

The provisions of Law No. 4 of 1962 relating to Patents, Designs and Industrial Models as amended by Law No. 3 of 2001, are the governing Laws of patents in Kuwait.

Kuwait has issued Law No. 11/2016 approving the accession of Kuwait to the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). But, the Kuwaiti Patent Office stopped accepting new patent applications as of April 4, 2016. The only option left was to register the patents via GCC Patent Office. However, the Kuwaiti Patent Office has started accepting patent applications from February 27, 2018 onward.

Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT)

Kuwait became one of the contracting parties to the PCT when it deposited its instrument of accession on June 9, 2016. The Treaty came into force on September 9, 2016.

Accordingly, any international application filed on or after September 9, 2016, designated Kuwait (KW) can enter the National Phase in Kuwait. However, the Kuwaiti Patent Office started accepting the national phase entry of the PCT on March 27, 2018.

Filing Options

There are two ways in which a patent can be filed in Saudi Arabia:

NB: The GCC patent office has started new applications on behalf of Bahrain (BH) and Kuwait (KW) starting January 1, 2023.

The GCCPO will conduct the formal and substantive examinations and transfer the patents to national patent offices for a grant.
