European Union: UK Ratifies Hague Agreement for Industrial Designs

 

On March 13, 2018, the UK deposited the instrument of ratification of the Geneva Act (1999) of the Hague Agreement with WIPO, in Geneva, completing its final step toward joining the Hague Agreement for industrial designs.  The Act will come into effect on June 13, 2018.

The Decision to join the Hague system will allow applicants to register designs in the UK through an application filed with the International Bureau at WIPO.
