Possible “No-Deal” Brexit: Implications for Hague System Users

March 22, 2019

The Government of the United Kingdom (UK) has published a draft statutory instrument that provides continued protection in the UK for designs in international applications and registrations under the Hague System, in which the European Union (EU) has been designated. 

The solutions provided for in the draft statutory instrument would only apply in the event of a “no-deal” Brexit.  

WIPO is releasing information on this draft statutory instrument to make Hague System users aware of how their rights would be preserved in the UK – and how to safeguard those rights – in a ‘no‑deal’ scenario.
