The following comments provide an overview of Vietnam`s implementation of the Agreement and are based on the country`s instrument of accession and related declarations, as well as information recently exchanged at a workshop organized by the Vietnam Intellectual Property Office and discussions with officials of the Patent Office. The objective of introducing the Hague System in Canada is to help companies commercialize their intellectual property by adapting Canada`s industrial design framework to international standards and simplifying the application process by reducing regulatory burdens, reducing costs and reducing bureaucracy. Some formulations found in the Industrial Design Act and Regulations have been adapted to adapt the terminology to international standards, such as.B. the replacement of the notion of attribution by "transfers" to reflect the general language of the international IP community. The Hague System allows for a consistent approach to the management and maintenance of IP rights across jurisdictions and supports the Canadian government`s intellectual property strategy to develop a modern and robust regime that supports innovation. First, a potential candidate consults an IP expert to prepare their application package. Industrial design application packages typically consist of drawings showing the design, project description and identification of the applicant, as well as the contact details of the applicant and the representative. The agreement was reached in the Dutch city of The Hague. The amendments to the Industrial Design Act and new rules are intended to make international industrial design applications more accessible to innovators and facilitate the growth of Canada`s knowledge-based economy. These changes are in part a necessary part of the introduction of the Hague System into Canadian law, but also bring our intellectual property system closer to the status quo among our major trading partners. This reduces the complexity and cost of doing business, both for Canadian innovators who wish to bring their intellectual property to international markets and for non-Canadian companies wishing to enter the Canadian market or strengthen their presence in the Canadian market. . However, the Intellectual Property Office of Vietnam (IP Office) may reject the application as insufficient to fully disclose the professional design in accordance with Rule 9(4) if other views, in particular six orthogonal views (front, back, top, basement, right and left views) are not presented.
A list of Contracting Parties shall be maintained by WIPO. Certified copies of entries in the Design Register are now allowed as evidence in court and errors in filing documents in documents in the Design Register can now be corrected within six months of the filing date. This roadmap shows you the steps to apply for industrial design protection in multiple countries through an application for registration and pay a fee in one currency through a single transaction with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Vietnam applies the third stage of the standard naming fee provided for in Rule 12(1)(c)(i). The Hague Convention on the International Registration of Industrial Designs (Geneva Act of July 2, 1999 - "1999 Act") officially entered into force in Vietnam on December 30, 2019. Users of the Hague System can now designate Vietnam in an international design application. Note that the scope of protection conferred on a design in any jurisdiction depends entirely on the law of those jurisdictions, so the Hague Convention provided only for an international procedure for obtaining such protection. .
