The Ministry of Industry and Commerce has introduced an initiative promoting innovation and safeguarding intellectual property rights in Bahrain. This initiative involves lowering the official fees for patent registration for individuals. The Ministry's decision for this fee reduction was announced by Official Gazette No. 3699, dated September 21, 2023.1

Through the recent regulatory changes of a reduction in official fees, the Ministry is able to provide individuals with a more accessible avenue for inventors to protect and share their innovative ideas.
