Design Registration Solicitors

The EC submitted its instrument of accession to the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement on the International Registration of Industrial Designs on 24 September 2007.

From 1 January 2008, applicants will be able to obtain Community registered designs by means of an international application which could also cover other, non-EU countries which are signatories to the Geneva Act. Accession opens up the international system to UK applicants for the first time, as the UK itself has not yet ratified the Hague Agreement.
