New IP Regulations

01 Nov 1999

The Ministry of Supply and Trade in Yemen issued its decree No. 263 for 1999, dated October 1, 1999 increasing the official fees in Yemen by 50% and amending the structure of the classes. Classes 1, 2,3,4,5,8,9,16,21,28,29,30,31 and 32 have been divided into subclasses (provided herebelow); other classes remain unchanged.
