Hague System Website – New Interfaces

March 11, 2021

With a view to enhancing your online experience with us, we have launched a set of new web interfaces providing more in depth information about the Hague System and the procedures for filing international design applications, renewing / managing international registrations and searching existing designs. At the same time, we have improved navigation to our online services and resources from the Hague home page.

We have adjusted the content of our home page to give both new and potential customers a quick and basic understanding of the System including the benefits of filing internationally. For our seasoned users, the updated 'Resources' section of the page continues to provide quick access to all supporting and reference materials and more.

The new interfaces

Four new interfaces – catering for users of all backgrounds and levels – guide you through the workings of the Hague System and the main steps involved in international design protection – from searching existing designs and filing applications and managing registrations, through to renewing registrations. Each interface provides you with direct links to all related services, resources and products that you need for each given function.
