Jamaica joins the international design system

On November 10, 2021, the Government of Jamaica deposited its instrument of accession to the Geneva Act (1999) of the Hague Agreement. As of February 10, 2022, Jamaican companies and designers will be able to file international industrial design applications, while foreign applicants will be able to designate Jamaica in their applications before the World Intellectual Property Organization. The international route represents an attractive option compared to the national design in terms of costs and formalities. This includes the opportunity to cover as many as 100 designs under one set of fees. 92 other countries can be designated.
