Accession to Hague System for the International Registr...


On April 3, 2017, President Vladimir Putin signed the law on ratification of the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs.

Russia signed the Geneva Act on July 6, 1999, but has not completed the domestic procedures necessary to adopt it as an international agreement of the Russian Federation.

Now, finally, after 18 years, the agreement has been ratified and after complying with formalities Russia will become a party to the Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs.

The law on ratification will enter into force on October 1, 2017. After this WIPO will be notified of the ratification, and in 3 months the Russian Federation may be designated in international applications for registration of industrial designs. This may be expected soon but not earlier than January 1, 2018.
