New steps in the accession of Community Designs to the Geneva Act
Two drafts of regulations have been made by the Commission at the end of May 2007 to implement the new system enabling an applicant to claim Community Designs though a WIPO application. The Commission should formally adopt the new regulations by August 2007. The new system is currently scheduled to enter into force by January 2008. We will report accordingly on the new system and further developments relating thereto.
