      Towards Hague design system adoption in Indonesia and Vietnam

      Published on 09 Oct 2019 | 1 minute read

      Its been a long time coming but adoption of the Hague Agreement for design filing is now coming in SE Asia. The Hague international designs system allows for a single design application to be filed with WIPO for protection in multiple countries. Applicants must be from a contracting state. See here for the background. The ASEAN Economic Community has been hoping a number of members would follow its policy and join Hague. Singapore and Cambodia are already members. 

      Indonesia plans to amend its designs law to implement Hague. The draft law is presently before Parliament, but the new parliamentary term will start soon, and a rescheduling will occur. Probably the law will pass in 2020. 

      Vietnam has announced it too will adopt the Hague system. It filed its notice of accession last week. The IP law is undergoing amendment now.  Hague filings may begin to be accepted in 2020.
