Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs

On December 18, 2012, title I of the Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012 was enacted to implement the provisions of the 1999 Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs (“Hague Agreement”). The Hague Agreement is an international registration system which offers the possibility of obtaining protection for industrial designs in a number of member countries and intergovernmental organizations (referred to as “Contracting Parties”) by means of a single international application filed either directly with the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) or indirectly through the applicant’s Contracting Party.

Information concerning the Hague system, including geographic coverage and a guide for users, is available at WIPO’s Web site http://www.wipo.int/hague/en/.
