A description is required. Vietnam made the statement under Article 5, paragraph 2, point a), of the 1999 Act, which states that an international request that characterizes Vietnam contains, in accordance with Article 5, paragraph 2, point b) (ii), a brief description of the characteristics of the design. International applications in Vietnam are subject to additional time. In accordance with Article 65, paragraph 4, of the Intellectual Property Act: if it is established that the application complies with the requirements of the Hague system, the design is registered and published and the application file is forwarded to the regional industrial design offices in the countries identified by the applicant. These regional offices conduct a substantive legal review that determines whether the industrial design complies with local legal protection requirements. The International Bureau does not conduct such a background check. The audit of content by the regional offices must be completed within only six months and, in some cases, the regional office has 12 months to carry out a review. It is interesting to note that if the regional offices do not reject the application within the applicable time frame, the application is considered admissible and protected in this legal system. Offices may also provide explicit protection to the project before the deadline expires. Some languages, found in the Industrial Design Act and regulations, have been adapted to adapt terminology to international standards, such as. B the replacement of the term “assignment” with “transfers” to reflect the common language of the international IP community. Note that the extent of the protection afforded to a design in any jurisdiction depends entirely on the law of those jurisdictions, so that the Hague Convention provides for only one international procedure to obtain that protection.
The Hague Agreement allows applicants to register a commercial design by filing a single application with WIPO`s International Office, so that design holders can protect their designs with minimal formalities in several countries or regions. The Hague agreement also simplifies the management of registration in industrial designs, as it is possible to record the changes after the fact and renew international registration in a single step. A claim is required in accordance with the common form: “Demand for comprehensive protection for industrial designs as demonstrated and described.” Vietnam made the statement under Article 5, paragraph 2, point a), of the 1999 Act, that an international application called Vietnam contains a right to the protection of the design in accordance with Article 5, paragraph 2, point b), paragraph 3).
