How to Search the International Register

The International Designs Bulletin is the official publication of the records of the International Register of the Hague System.

The Hague Express Database updated weekly, includes bibliographical data and, as far as international registrations governed exclusively or partly by the 1999 and/or by the 1960 Act(s) of the Hague Agreement are concerned, reproductions of industrial designs relating to international registrations that have been recorded in the International Register and published in the International Designs Bulletin as of issue No. 1/1999. International registrations that have elapsed are not removed from the database.

While every effort is made to ensure that this information accurately reflects the data recorded in the International Register, the only official publication remains the Bulletin and the only official statements by the International Bureau regarding the contents of the International Register for a given international registration remains the certified extracts from the Register established on request by the International Bureau.

Extracts and Certified Copies are official information from the Register. Extracts and Certified Copies are also useful for claiming priority under the Paris convention.

Under part VI of the schedule of fees, the fees for information services are included.

To order extracts or copies, please contact us and indicate the registration number for which you want to order extracts or copies.

Data from the bulletin is available in computer-readable format, XML, via our FTP server.
