Definition
The Hague Agreement provides a mechanism for acquiring, maintaining and managing design rights in countries and intergovernmental organizations that are members of the Hague Union through a single international application filed with the International Bureau of the WIPO that results in a single international registration with individual effect in each of the Contracting Parties designated therein.
Thus, the Hague Agreement allows users to save time and money by enabling them to easily and swiftly acquire design protection in multiple markets, as a single international application replaces a whole series of applications which, otherwise, should have been effected with different national Offices.
