The first Patent Law in the United Arab Emirates was introduced in the year 1992. According to the Patent Law No. 44 for 1992, an invention is defined as: ďAny innovative idea relating to a product, a method of manufacture, or an application of a known method of manufacture leading to a practical solution to a technological problem.
The United Arab Emirates since then has issued two amended Patent Laws, in 2002 and in 2006. The 2002 main amendment included the articles related to the filing of national phase of PCT applications. This amendment was issued after the UAE signing of the Patent Cooperation Treaty in the year 1999.
No major amendments were made in the 2006, except changing some definitions after the transfer of Patent Department administration from the Ministry of Finance and Industry to the Ministry of Economy. However, both amendments were made to the previously issued law, but no amendment was made to the implementing regulations thereof.
