The information below provides an overview of Vietnam`s implementation of the agreement and is based on the country`s membership instrument and its statements, as well as information exchanged at a recent workshop organized by the Vietnam Intellectual Property Office and during discussions with officials of the Patent Office. The agreement was reached in the Dutch city of The Hague. Some administrative reform is specifically aimed at removing ambiguities in essential legal matters and promoting easy access. This reform includes clarifying the information included in the industrial performance register – i.e. the date of registration, the date of the application, the information relating to each priority request, the registration number and the name and address of the registered holder. ∆ Including all overseas departments and territories Member of the European UnionN No postponement of publicationS Only six months of postponement of publication T 10 months postponement of publication 10 years maximum15 maximum term 15 years25 Maximum duration twenty-five years Maximum duration 50 years Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Côte d`Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon , Guinea Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Togo, But only 5 years for items for the repair of a combined product, but only 15 years for items for the Repair of a Combined Product.

The Canadian Industrial Design Act was amended in 2014 and the new industrial design regulations were finalized in 2018 in the Canada Gazette, Part II, to make Canada a party to the Hague Agreement and implement the Hague system. The 1934 Act was frozen on January 1, 2010, so that no new registration or designation under the 1934 Act could be registered on the International Register on that date. However, the renewal of existing denominations under the 1934 Act and the inclusion in the International Register of any changes concerning these denominations remain possible, up to the maximum period of protection of the 1934 Act (15 years).
