The Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs offers a practical commercial solution for the registration of up to 100 designs in 74 Contracting Parties in 91 countries through the filing of a single international application. Countries can become parties to the 1960 Act (The Hague), the 1999 Act (Geneva) or both. If a country signs only one law, applicants from that country can only use the Hague System to obtain protection for their designs in other countries subject to the same law. For example, since Japan has only signed the 1999 Geneva Act, applicants who can use the Hague System because they reside in the European Union can only benefit from protection in countries that have also signed the 1999 law or the 1999 and 1960 laws. ∆ Total overseas departments and territoriesE Member of the European UnionN No postponement of publicationS Only six months Postponement of publication T Only twelve months Publication period10 Maximum duration 10 years15 Maximum duration 10 years15 Maximum duration fifteen years25 Maximum duration twenty-five years50 Member countries are benign, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Côte d`Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea inea, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Togo+ But only 5 years for repair items of a combined product* But only 15 years for repair items of a combined productØ Does not apply to the Faroe Islands, but applies to Greenland for international registrations of January 11, 2011, or later.
