MANAMA - His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa issued the decision No. 6 of 2014 approving the unified Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Trademark Law which was ratified in Bahrain in 2012, according to a press release by Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property.

The GCC Trademark Law is expected to enter into force in Bahrain six months after its Implementing Regulations are issued.

In this regard, Kingdom of Bahrain is still adopting the current Trademark Law No. 11 of 2006 until the GCC Trademark Law is effective.

The Law, which comprises 52 articles, outlines the general directives and rulings governing trademark registration, renewal, assignment and cancellation procedures in the GCC countries.
