When preparing reproductions of your industrial model in an international application, you must ensure that you have met the mandatory requirements of Rules 7 and 9 of the joint regulations under the 1999 Act and the 1960 Act of the Hague Convention and the fourth part of the administrative instructions for the application of the Hague Convention. In addition, you can consult the “guidelines on the preparation and availability of copies to avoid possible refusals due to insufficient disclosure of a business design by the review boards.” When the effects of an international registration are invalidated in a designated party and the cancellation is no longer subject to review or claim, the contracting party`s office informs the International Bureau. Topics: Designs – General, Designs – International , IP Protection DIP Head of Madrid Group Khachaphon Thiengtrakul explained the current procedures for international filings from Thailand, portrayed with detailed process mapping. The nullity procedure for an international registration with a designated contracting party takes place directly between the holder of the international registration, the competent authority and the third party. The procedure is subject exclusively to the law and practice of the contracting party concerned. At the end of the transition period, the United Kingdom will also create equivalent national rights from all international registrations that expired in the six months prior to 1 January 2021 and have not been renewed with the WIPO International Office until 1 January 2021. In this case, the international registration with the INTERNATIONAL Office of WIPO must be renewed within six months of the expiry date of the extension and the holder must notify the British IPO that the corresponding international registration has been renewed with the INTERNATIONAL Office of WIPO. If the expired international registration is not renewed within that six-month period, the British model will be removed from the UK register at the end of that period. This information is simplified and should not be considered a definitive statement of law or practice. An international registration that did not publish the European Union on 1 January 2021, including the period during which publication was postponed, is considered by the United Kingdom to be the equivalent of a pending application. This means that a licensee can apply for a design in the UK within nine months of 1 January 2021.
The holder of the international registration may request an audit or claim against the refusal in the designated party concerned. The holder of the international registration had the same rights and remedies as if he had filed the commercial order in question directly with the Agency which issued the notification of the refusal. The ensuing procedure takes place exclusively at the national or regional level and is subject to the requirements of the law of the party concerned (for example. B deadline, language, appointment of a representative, etc.).
