Oman Accedes to Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement

15 Dec 2008

MUSCAT – The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) announced that on December 4, 2008, the Sultanate of Oman acceded to the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs, adopted at Geneva on July 2, 1999 (the “Geneva Act”).

The Geneva Act will enter into force in respect of the Sultanate of Oman on March 4, 2009.

The Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement enhances the Hague system by making it more compatible with the procedures for the registration of industrial designs in countries where protection of industrial designs is sometimes contingent on a more complex examination to determine the acceptability of an application, so as to allow these countries, such as the United States and Japan, to accede to the Hague System.
