IP Office Current Operations

The Lebanese IP Office at the Ministry of Economy and Trade has partially resumed its activities as of August 25, 2020, which were suspended as a result of the explosion in Beirut.

The IP Office started receiving patent and design applications, new trademark applications with priority claim, renewals, and annuities, and all recordal applications.

New trademark applications without priority claim will be filed exclusively online, and the examination of these applications will begin after the full resumption of the IP Office's activities. According to the Cabinet Law No. 185 of the Lebanese Cabinet of Ministers, adopted after the explosion, all deadlines which includes renewals, annuities, priorities, filing of documents, legal action, will remain officially extended until December 31, 2020.
