MEXICO: Accession to the Hague System


Accession to the Hague System

As from last June 6, 2020, Mexico has joined the Hague System concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs.

Consequently, as from such date, national applicants can already use the Hague System to protect their Industrial Designs in the territories of the 89 member countries of the above-mentioned Hague Agreement, through a single international application and the payment of the established fees.

In the same sense, foreign applicants have the option of designating Mexico to protect their Industrial Designs under the Hague System (World Intellectual Property Organization - WIPO).
