Gulf BPG kicked off the year with the first session of the “Meet the Authority” series, in collaboration with the IP Respect Council initiative. The session focused on introducing the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP), its enforcement procedure and challenges.

Malek Hannouf, Gulf BPG Chairman, started the session by extending a warm welcome to Mr. Yasser Al Debassi, the Executive Director of IP Respect at SAIP, and all attendees from the private sector.

During the session, Mr. Al Debassi and his team provided an introduction to SAIP, and insights on tasks, strategic pillars, copyright enforcement, the IP Respect officer program and the Customs enforcement platform TAHAQAQ.

Following the presentations, a dynamic Q&A session unfolded, allowing brand owners to share their challenges and propose strategies for maximizing the benefits of the system in enforcing intellectual property rights in Saudi Arabia.
