Industrial Designs – Mexico joins the Hague System

Last June 6, 2020 Mexico joined the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs.

Beginning on June 6, 2020, the national petitioners may make use of the Hague System to protect their industrial drawings and models in the territories of up to 89 countries, through a single international petition and the payment of a set of fees. Foreign petitioners now have the option of selecting Mexico to protect their industrial drawings and models under the Hague System.

In this regard, on June 5, 2020 the ruling issued by the Mexican Industrial Property Institute (IMPI) announcing the applicable governmental fees and the specifications and rules for filing documents and application procedures, was published in the Official Federal Gazette.
