Yes, today is the day that the Hague Agreement enters into force in Israel. This is an important development for the Hague system, which is the international filing mechanism for protection of industrial designs.
I blogged about this imminent development in Israel back on October 8, 2019.
As of today, companies and designers from Israel can begin using the Hague system to protect their industrial designs. The applicant can pursue protection in many countries through a single international application and a single set of fees.
Likewise from today, those located outside of Israel will be able to seek design protection in Israel through the Hague system.
The two-letter code is “IL”.
