Search for Published Patents
Through its IP Data Center, AGIP conducts a comprehensive search for patents published in the Official Gazettes and National Patent Offices websites in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jordan, Yemen, Lebanon, the GCC Patent Office, Libya, Algeria and Tunisia.
This search aims to determine patent’s availability for use and registration, as well as it evaluates whether such patents conflict with previously existing rights owned by third parties.
Using a number of criteria such as title, abstract, names (inventor/ applicant), numbers and dates (publication/ application/ priority) and patent families, the search covers pre-filing search, bibliographic search, English equivalent patent search, English related documents search and equivalent patent family search.
After conducting the search, clients are provided with a full detailed search report including any patents similar or matching to theirs within less than 24 hours.
The search report incorporates the following information: bibliographic data including the abstract, legal status including the effective date, the expiry date of the right and transactions, original document of the patent of interest, as well as translation of claims (the last two are only applicable in Saudi Arabia).
