As per the requisite of the Kuwaiti Trademarks implementing regulations adopted earlier, the aforementioned actions should be published in the official gazette in order to put said actions in actual effect with the trademarks registrar and endorsement of these actions on the respective registration certificates. However, the Kuwaiti Trademarks Registrar is currently effecting these procedures without payment of publication fees as they are not published in the official gazette.
