The WIPO provides a centralised system for filing international design applications. It is based on the Hague Agreement concerning the International Deposit of Industrial Designs.
You can register up to 100 designs in over 65 contracting states including the EU, the US, Japan, Korea and Liechtenstein* with a single application.
For more information on filing your application, geographical coverage, the Locarno Classification and fees, please visit the WIPO website.
* NB: Unlike for patents, the Principality of Liechtenstein has no treaty for designs with Switzerland. Design applications for Liechtenstein can be filed with their “Amt für Volkswirtschft ”(AVW ).
