International Protection Opens Up for UK Designers
12/06/2018

Protecting any form of intellectual property overseas can potentially be expensive, and so over the years various systems have been developed to allow for cost savings as well as making the administration of IP rights more straightforward. 

For designs, sitting alongside the EU Registered Design, is a system for protecting designs under an international convention called the Hague Agreement.  UK designers have until now only been able to use this system due to the UK’s membership of the EU, so separate membership of the system by the UK has been an important step ahead of Brexit.

From 13 June 2018 UK designers will be able to utilise this international system as a result of UK membership, meaning that the option will continue to be available post-Brexit.  With the high value of design to the UK economy this is an important development for those venturing into global markets with their products.

The UK takes the membership of the system to 68, with other prominent members including the EU, USA, South Korea, Japan and Russia.
