Hague System – New Designation Available: Mexico

June 6, 2020

Mexico's accession to the Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs has entered into force. As of June 6, 2020, applicants can start using the Hague System to protect their industrial designs in Mexico – through a single international application and a single set of fees – by designating Mexico in an international application. This translates to protection in the territories of 91 countries.
