Korea to Provide Customized Training to Saudi Arabia on Patent Examination

Issued: April 03 2014

A training body of the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) will provide customized training on the country’s patent administration to patent examiners in Saudi Arabia from March 25 to April 4, 2014.


Around 10 patent examiners from Saudi Arabia will travel to Korea and receive in-depth training on Korea’s IP system, examination, patent information system, and other advanced patent administration systems and IP policies.


“Throughout the ongoing training, we will spread what practical examination know-how we have thus far accumulated,” said Byun Hoon-suk, dean of the International Intellectual Property Training Institute.


“We will also share Korea’s advanced patent system, as well as fully lend our support to enhancing the patent administration capacity of the Middle East. It is all part of an effort to bolster exchanges and cooperation between Korea and the Middle East.”


KIPO has provided training to patent examiners in the Middle East since 2012. The office said more countries in the region were now hoping to get training from KIPO.
